Daniel Constantine of Citizens told News 8’s Dan Klein that the two water main breaks in Westfield are not connected to the high water pressure issues in Noblesville.

Citizens said the water main breaks in Westfield are a result of high water use, mainly through sprinklers watering dry lawns.

Citizens had not decided by 5 p.m. whether it would have to issue boil orders in the areas affected by the Westfield water main breaks.

The issue in Noblesville developed during valve maintenance work, according to Citizens Energy Group. “The issue has been isolated and pressures have returned to normal,” the company said in a statement to News 8.

An estimated 100 Noblesville-area homes have been impacted and crews are going door-to-door in the area of the Twin Oaks subdivision to see if customers are having pressure problems or if any damage has been done.

If you are experiencing pressure issues in the Twin Oaks area, you are asked to call Citizens Contact Center at 317-924-3311.
