RENSSELAER, N.Y. (NEWS10) – A water main break in Rensselaer has closed down a major road way in the city.
Lee VanPraag with William J. Keller & Sons construction said the company has been out several times to repair a break.
“I would say there’s been at least a half a dozen breaks on it that we’ve been called in to repair,” he said.
VanPraag said replacing the line would be a better option, but the city may not have the money for the construction.
“You’re looking at budget money and what the municipalities have to work with,” he said. “They don’t have the money to fix it, so they do a repair and carry on from there.”
