MEDINA – The main transmission line for Medina’s water system will be shut down tonight so crews can make a repair.

The line will be turned off at 9 p.m. and then the 24-inch main needs to be drained. Then crews from the Niagara County Water District and Village of Medina Department of Public Works will weld a section where there is a leak near Pride Pak.

The NC Water District and Medina DPW will each have six people working all night on the project.

Jason Watts, the Medina DPW superintendent, said he hopes the job will be done by 7 a.m.

The village filled its 3 million gallon water tank over the weekend in anticipation of the repair tonight.
