At 5:35 p.m. Sunday evening, the City of Emporia discovered a main line water leak had led to low water pressure.
Assistant City Manager Lane Massey said the indication was that there is a main line leak near Presbyterian Manor that ruptured.
"Staff is currently trying to isolate that line and shut it down so that they start repairs hopefully this evening," he said.
Massey said it is potable water that is leaking and could effect the entire city of Emporia by causing low water pressure.
"Residents will be experiencing some low water pressure until they can isolate the line," he said. "It will probably take a couple of hours to isolate the line, and it could take the rest of the evening and into tomorrow to get it corrected due to the location it is at."
