Classes are set to resume at Harvey's Thornton Township High School after a broken pipe forced the school to close on Tuesday.

On Tuesday, 1,800 students were sent home due to a water main break which started Monday directly across the street.

While the problem at the school is fixed, crews are still working to repair other broken pipes and water mains around Harvey.

The extreme cold temperatures have been wreaking havoc on Harvey's aging infrastructure.

Harvey's director of public works estimates that the rest of the water main breaks should be taken care of over the next two to three days.
