The San Antonio Water System notified KENS 5 about a 12-inch water main break in the area between Interstate Highway 37 and Applewhite Road.

SAWS said about 5,000 customers are without running water in that area.

Repairs are expected to take all day. SAWS said a boil water order will go into effect when water service is restored.

There are two stations set up to provide people with water.

  • Shady Forest Drive and Priest Road: Volunteers will be handing out bottled water.
  • Highway 281 South and Memorial Drive: There will be a water tanker and people should come with their own containers.

Check back on for updates.
