Broken water line disrupts business

LAWTON, Okla._Water flow to a number of businesses along East Gore Blvd. was disrupted after a contractor working to install a business's sprinkler system hit a water line.

City crews said the contractor was trying to install the sprinkler system Thursday evening at a new convenient store when it happened. Spewing water went gushing down the street around 7 p.m. That's when area businesses started losing water and were experiencing low water pressure. Los Tres, a nearby Mexican restaurant, was even forced to close its doors nearly three hours early because of the problem.

"The water busted so, can't use the bathroom, cant do drinks anything like that," said restaurant employee Brianna Felix.

Employees with the Apache convenience store also were having water problems.

Water crews weren't exactly sure when full service was expected to return, but said it could take a few hours.
