— Craig city workers dug a huge hole in the corner of Yampa Avenue and Victory Way on Wednesday morning in order to fix a water valve leak on a water main.

The work crew started early and finished construction later in the afternoon.

“We just don’t know yet if it’s a bolt that’s gone or just a seal” that caused the leak, said Tim Kulp, a water technician for the city. “We’re hoping to just repair the valve.”



The city found out about the leak because a small puddle of water was present over the valve on the street prior to digging up the corner.
