PUEBLO WEST — UPDATE:

Crews are now working to repair damaged roads in Pueblo West after a major water line break earlier Thursday in the area of Palmer Lake and Agnus.

Service was restored in the afternoon, officials say customers might notice changes in water quality. That's due to velocities in the pipe from the sudden movement of water, according to District officials.

Some roads in the area were seriously damaged by the break and remain closed for repairs.
