UPDATE 8:05 p.m.

Power was restored by about 3 p.m., said Colorado Springs Utilities spokeswoman Natalie Eckhart. Shortly after noon, 10 to 15 customers lost power, she said.

The City of Manitou Springs posted on its Facebook page about 4:30 p.m. that crews were still working to repair the water main break in the 700 block of Manitou Avenue. 

"Crews are working through some unexpected difficulties and water is to remain off until later this evening," the post said.

UPDATE 1:04 p.m.

Power has been cut off to parts of Manitou Springs after a contractor working on the Colorado Springs Utilities Pipeline project knocked down a power pole.

The pole fell on El Paso Boulevard near Becker's Lane in Manitou Springs, wrote the City of Manitou Springs in a Facebook post. 

No estimated time of power restoration.

Maintenance crews are working to fix a reported water main break Tuesday in Manitou Springs.

Water is being turned off and will affect customers on Manitou Avenue from Pawnee to Canon Avenue and adjacent areas.

The City of Manitou Springs said to expect at least two to four hours before service is restored.

On Wednesday, two water lines broke in Manitou Springs, one on Crystal Hills Boulevard and another on Crystal Valley Road.

Water was turned off to residents and businesses in the Crystal Park and Via neighborhoods and adjacent areas until 6 p.m. the next day. Repair crews discovered that two valves in the water line had gone bad and will not open. 

On Tuesday, crews dup up and replaced the broken valves, shutting off water to Crystal Hills Boulevard and one block of Sutherland Road.
