AUGUSTA,Ga (WJBF) Water mains have  be a pain for Augusta’s Utilities Department.

Repair crews were  hopping this weekend,  repairing  three different water main  breaks in west Augusta.
The breaks were in the same general area, but  on different sides of what’s called a  “boundary valve.”

So today department officials are investigating to to find out if the breaks are somehow connected.

“”First of all check that boundary value to see if it is in the proper position they want. We’ll go check pressures  in the vicinity,” says Utilities Department Director Tom Wiedmeier.

Service has been restored Wiedmeier says there could be  some complaints of dirty water associated with the breaks.
