Water-main leak closes Bowsher


Bowsher High School was closed yesterday and westbound traffic on Glendale Avenue near South Detroit Avenue in South Toledo was restricted to one lane because of a leaking valve on a 24-inch water main, authorities said.

Classes will not resume today at Bowsher, school officials said. But planned homecoming activities this evening will go on as planned.

The leak, which caused water to flow to the surface on Glengate Drive near the South Detroit-Glendale intersection was reported about 2:30 a.m., police said.

Repairs were completed about 11 hours later, Bob Williams, the city's utilities director, said.
