BREAKING: Significant water leak in village of Wellsville

There's a "very large" water leak in the village of Wellsville. Department of Public Works Assistant Director Brad Mattison says while the village has plenty of water, the leak is "significant." Mattison said the trouble was discovered Tuesday when the village noticed a major spike in water usage. Here's the hitch...officials don't know where the leak is. Mattison is asking residents to be alert for low water pressure, dirty water, or sudden pools of water. He says if anyone spots something, call 585-596-1710 immediately. Crews will be working round-the-clock until the leak is discovered. Mattison said, basically, crews will have to patrol the entire village...listening and looking until the leak is found.
