W - Alachua Water Leak - DSCN3109 copy

Crews from the City of Alachua spent most of the afternoon on Monday, Dec. 3, repairing a water leak on Main Street. Area residents say they noticed water running down Main Street as early as Sunday afternoon. By Monday morning, the City of Alachua began fielding calls about the apparent water leak. A short time later, city crews had closed off the area and were tearing up a small section of Alachua’s Main Street between NW 148th Place and NW 147th Avenue. By the early evening, the 3/4-inch pipe had been repaired. The roadway has also since been repaired.
