Midtown water leak remains unfixed

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Some people who live in midtown are upset because they say the city is wasting water and not acting quickly enough to fix a major leak.

About 1,000 customers were without water last week while Tucson Water tried unsuccessfully to fix the leak.

Within the next two weeks, about 170 people in that same neighborhood could see another water outage.

The area that will likely lose water is limited to neighborhoods south of 17th street to 22nd street and then going from Venice to Rosemont.

This leak is causing the biggest issue at Swan and 19th Street.

Some people told Tucson News Now they are upset because they feel it has taken way too long to fix this leak.

One gentleman says he reported this leak six or seven weeks ago and Tucson Water should practice what it preaches.

Tucson Water says when they initially tried to fix this leak last week, they discovered more leaks and that's what is taking so long.

They also said they are not sure exactly when they will be coming out again to fix it, and will be shutting off the water again. But it will be within the next two weeks, and at most only 170 customers will be dry for a few overnight hours.
