Water Main Break Left Businesses Without Water
Emergency construction work was needed Thursday to fix a water main break underneath Burghardt's Sporting Goods in Fox Point.
“[We] started at 7 p.m.” Paul Haugen said after emerging from a small swimming pool-sized mud pit, behind Burghardt’s Sporting Goods, 8625 N. Port Washington Road, on a chilly Thursday morning.
With mud covering his clothes and bags under his eyes, Fox Point’s water utility foreman explained the village’s water utility crew worked through the night to repair an emergency water main break beneath the sporting goods store.
“Fresh Market and Aurora Health Care are out of water,” he said.
Only moments passed before he climbed back down into the pit to return water to the businesses that need it.
