RICHARDSON (KRLD) - The City of Richardson is asking people to conserve water until crews can repair a broken water line near Breckinridge Park.

The main line feeds two distribution towers in the Richardson water supply system. The break happened Thursday afternoon near Crystal Mountain Drive.

Crews have been working to make repairs. Richardson city officials are asking people to limit their use to drinking, cooking, showering and other essential activities to keep the water towers as full as possible until the repairs are complete.

As of Friday morning, the city had asked residents to limit their water usage.
