Flinthills Mall typically opens at 10 am on weekdays. It opened at 10:05 am Friday after a water main break was discovered earlier in the morning.
The opening was delayed a few minutes so additional facilities could be brought on site. The water main failure was discovered in a parking lot east of the mall. No water got into the mall itself, according to mall manager Jose Feliciano.
10 am Friday: Water main break delays opening of Flinthills Mall
Flinthills Mall is dealing with a water main break in a parking lot east of the building Friday.
Mall manager Jose Feliciano says he was advised of the leak early Friday morning. No water got inside the mall itself, but the opening of the stores, driver's license office and Flint Hills Learning Center were all delayed until additional facilities could be brought on site.
Crews are working to both find the source of the leak and restore water service. There is currently no timetable for that effort.
