Wichita State University is without water – for the rest of Wednesday afternoon and night.
An e-mail was sent late Wednesday afternoon saying the entire campus is affected by repairs to a water line.
“Because of a valve stem break off the main 24-inch city of Wichita water line running across the east side of campus, that 24-inch line will have to be taken out of service to make repairs,” the e-mail said.
Although the water shutdown will affect water service to the entire campus, it is not catastrophic news – the university is on spring break, said Joe Kleinsasser, director of news and media relations at WSU.
Never miss a local story.
The repairs were expected to be made and water service was expected to resume on Thursday, the e-mail said.
