ODESSA - Thanks to our summer heat we've seen water pipes bust all across Odessa.

The city blames the problems on old pipes.

If you remember, a few years ago, the City of Odessa was allotted $50 million to make improvements.

Those improvements included city sewer and water pipes.

Crews have been working to replace lines all over town.

Unfortunately due to the high heat, they've had to focus their attention on the aging pipes that keep breaking.

Crews will continue to work to replace the pipes while working on any breaks that may occur in the future.
