Northeast Indiana city loses water amid weather woes

DECATUR, Ind. (AP) — Heavy recent snow and subzero temperatures created enough problems for residents of the northeastern Indiana city of Decatur, but then they lost their water.

WPTA-TV reports (http://bit.ly/K3sMLN ) a water main break late Monday left the city's three 500,000-gallon water towers empty and residents clearing store shelves of bottled water.

Mayor John Schultz said city crews hoped to have the main fixed by Tuesday night, but the water won't be safe to drink for several days. The city 20 miles south of Fort Wayne is under a boil advisory.

Schultz says he doesn't blame the recent inclement weather for the water main break. He says it's just an old line and bad timing.

Poll

There has been discussion at West Goshen Elementary School to require mandatory student uniforms in the future. How do you feel about the prospect of mandatory student uniforms in a public school environment?

I think it’s an excellent idea that is way overdue
I think it’s a bad idea and would be restrictive for students and parents.
