Three-dozen water main breaks in 36 hours.

Tulsa city crews made repairs all over town Friday.

Even so this is pretty typical.

The city of Tulsa fixes hundreds of water-main breaks every winter.

"We are busy today, we've been busy this week, but when you look at it over the months, we're right where we typically are." City Water Distribution Manager Rick Caruthers said.

Crews say they find the most water-line problems in older parts of town.

FOX23 has learned there will be extra staff and extra shifts added through the weekend to make sure they're available to work any more breaks.
