LEBANON, Ind. (WTHR) – 13 Investigates is looking into yet another water main break in Lebanon.

It's the fourth in three months in just one neighborhood.

Amy Houston, who we first introduced you to last month, is sharing a new video with Eyewitness News which shows another water main break problem.

Back in July, she was fighting the city over all the damage she said a water main break caused to her house.

After several weeks, the city's insurance company agreed to pay for the repairs.

She tells us city workers were back outside her house around 7:30 a.m. checking another break and working on it.

Eyewitness News talked with the Waste Water operations manager for the city of Lebanon.

He tells us this break isn't related to the last one. And there are several reasons this could have happened, including old pipes.

Workers are now putting in 20 feet of new pipes and they hope to have it done by the end of the day.

He tells us they'll be replacing more pipes in that area next year to prevent breaks like this from happening all the time.
