DEWEY, Okla. - Students at Dewey Public Schools were dismissed at 9:30 a.m. Monday for a broken water main in Bartlesville.
Superintendent of Dewey Public Schools Paul Smith says the break has caused the school to be without water.
Bartlesville city officials say a crew of six have been working on the break since about 4:00 a.m.
The 20 inch main feed to Dewey split in Johnstone Park in Bartlesville, probably due to ground movement and swelling, officials say.
The city is backfeeding water into Dewey from another line, so there should be some water pressure, says Bartlesville Water Director Mike Hall.
Hall says they will continue to work on the break and will have service restored as soon as possible.
