Pipe Break Drains Wayne County Village’s Water System

SIMS, Ill. (AP) — Volunteers have been distributing bottled water around a southern Illinois community after a water main break left its taps dry. The leak in the Wayne County village of Sims was discovered on Monday and soon drained its water tower. The village mayor says crews suspect a water pipe running underneath the Skillet Fork River was damaged during the weekend’s heavy rain. Crews aren’t certain when repairs will be completed.
