According to information from the City of Evanston, a leak on the 6-inch diameter water service line that serves the Chandler-Newberger Center at 1028 Central Street and the American Legion buildings at 1030 Central Street has resulted in a complete shut-down of the water there.

By about 9:15 a.m. on Jan. 3, the leak became so severe that the sewer service was surcharging, and to prevent property damage by having the flow go into basements, the City shut off the water at that time. The Parks, Recreation and Community Services staff will be relocating programs held at the Center while water is shut down, according to the City.
