Update: The Center for Creative Living reopened on Thursday after a water main break forced them to close.

An official with the center said issues have been fixed, water has been restored to the building, and meal services will resume on Friday.

The center is open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

LAWTON, Okla. (KSWO) - A water main break forced the Center for Creative Living to close Wednesday.

The center hosts a variety of events for seniors, as well as a hot meal service but because of the broken water main, they couldn’t do either.

Over a hundred people receive meals through the center, either in a congregational style or by delivery.

The center’s executive director explained why they couldn’t open without running water.

“Due to sanitary reasons, hand washing and toilet flushing and different things like that, we have had to close the center today to the public,” Lorene Miller said. “We have had to cancel our meal service today. We serve a hot meal three days a week -- Monday, Wednesday and Friday and today it’s been canceled because we can not make the service happen with no water.”

Miller said she was told the water should be on later today.

She expects the center to reopen Thursday, and for their meal service to resume on Friday.
