Yuma, AZ- Some businesses had to close their doors after a pipe burst in Down Town Yuma.
An employee at Hair Z Ends Salon tells News 13 they had to turn away most of their clients after they were notified by the city that the water would be shut off for several hours.
"No hair color, no shampoo, no pedicure. Nothing. So everybody had to reschedule their clients for later this week and everybody is going home except for me. I have two more nail clients and I don't need water for a manicure," said Sherri Evans and nail technician at Hair Z End Salon.
Evans says they don't have any type of insurance that would cover an incident like this She says they are lucky they won't lose revenue since they will see their clients another day.
As for the water main break. City of Yuma utilities crews worked on the 16 inch water main in the area of 3rd Street between Maiden Lane and Gila Street for hours.
"We sometimes notice a spike in breakages when the weather starts to turn cooler, especially when we get the first cold snap in late November early December. If we start to notice problem areas we put it in our capital improvement program and we budget to replace the whole main stretch," said Dave Nash with the City of Yuma.
Nash says old infrastructure and aging pipes are most likely to blame. No traffic lanes were closed in the area and there was no direct impact on the YCAT bus stop in front of the Hotel Del sol.
Update: Water was restored later in the afternoon to the businesses affected.
