LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) - A break in a 24-inch water line resulted all City of Lufkin customers, including Lufkin ISD's Dunbar Primary campus, between Jones Park and the loop being without water Monday.
City Manager Keith Wright said they discovered a large break in a 19-foot section of a 24-inch water line that feeds that part of the Lufkin. He said they got it isolated pretty quickly, and city employees are working to fix the problem as soon as possible.
Wright also said that he doesn't think the water line break was caused by the severe weather that blew through East Texas Sunday night and early Monday morning.
Sheila Adams, a spokeswoman for the Lufkin Independent School District, said that the principal of the Dunbar Primary campus told her that plenty of water has been brought, so they can make it through the rest of the day.
The Dunbar Primary principal also told Adams that the campus has plenty of bottled water, along with enough bottled water to flush the toilets and heat up food.
