ORIGINAL STORY: An area between Avenue N and Clare Drive on Sherwood Way is experiencing both a water main break and most recently, a gas leak.
On Wednesday evening, a 14-inch break in a water main caused residents to be with little to no water pressure. Crews from the City of San Angelo worked from Wednesday evening and continue into Thursday afternoon to make the repairs necessary to restore water service.
At approximately 2:10 p.m., a call came across the scanner indicating that a work crew had hit a gas line near the Sherwood Way Walgreens location.
Customers affected by the water issue are unknown, according to COSA Public Information Officer, Anthony Wilson, Thursday morning. Wilson further said he did not have an estimated time of repair on the water issue.
Atmos Energy has been notified of the gas leak on Sherwood Way. San Angelo police and firefighters have responded to the scene and are awaiting Atmos.
Police issued a Nixle alert at 2:31 p.m. asking drivers to avoid the 3300 block of Sherwood Way.
