A water main break with the main transmission line in Conway was expected to cause water issues for about six hours Monday afternoon, according to a Conway news release.

The line feeds water into the City of Conway.

Conway Public Utility was working Monday to figure out what caused the problem. Equipment to begin repairs was staged on Crabtree Canal Bridge off Mill Pond Road, according the release.

Officials believes the break would affect between 20 to 30 residencies and businesses near the M.L Brown Public Safety building on Main Street in Conway.

“We are asking business owners and homeowners in that area to please be patient as crews work quickly to repair the line,” the release said.
