Water main break shuts rec center


Evanston's Utilites Department will be working today to fix a leak in the water main that serves the Chandler-Newberger Center on Central Street.

The recreation center staff will relocate programs held at the center while the water is shut off. The shutoff will begin at 10 a.m. No word yet on when the water is expected to be turned back on.

The shutoff of the 6-inch line to the center at 1028 Central will also affect the American Legion building next door at 1030 Central.

Update 9;15 a.m.: Because of the severity of the leak — which is overloading sewers in the area, the water now is being shut off immediately.
