Water main break creates gusher in Cedar Grove - KSLA News 12 Shreveport, Louisiana News Weather & Sports

Water Main: Classes to resume Thursday at Linwood Charter School


Classes at Linwood Charter School will resume Thursday after a major water main break sent students home around noon on Wednesday.

Administrators say a break in the 12-in main created a gusher in front of the school on W. 70th St. at Linwood Ave.

The water main should be fixed within the next 2 to 4 hours, school administrator Letisha Williams says.

The force of the water tossed chunks of concrete into the air, nearly striking passing vehicles. 

A city crew is on the scene working on repairs. 

The road was closed for about 30 minutes just before Noon, but has since reopened to one lane.
