An overnight water line break has forced Kaufman Independent School District schools to close Tuesday, officials say.
In a tweet, Kaufman ISD officials said there will be no school on Tuesday, Dec. 19 due to the water break. School and semester exams will resume on Wednesday with normal release times. There will be no early release, as previously scheduled.
City officials said an older 12-inch water line erupted in the 800 block of Fair Street. Residents and businesses were asked to limit water use as repairs continued.
Crews hoped to repair the line by midday Tuesday.
