State collecting water main break repair totals

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -- Wisconsin Emergency Management officials are adding up the damage from water main breaks across the state to see if we're eligible for federal disaster relief.

They're asking cities and counties to tally up broken pipe-related costs.

If there's more than $8 million statewide, local governments and utilities could qualify for relief.

In Madison alone, there were more than 300 water main breaks last year.
