Traffic on Lee and Capitol streets in Charleston reopened Tuesday morning after a major water leak.
The leak occurred on a fire service line that feeds into a building in the area, Laura Jordan, spokeswoman for West Virginia American Water, said. She said the call came in about 9:20 a.m., and crews were able to shut off the leak within 25 minutes.
At one point, water in the road was about a foot and a half deep. She said the repairs to the fire service line will be the responsibility of the building's owner. The name of the owner and the address of the building were unavailable.
A water main break occurred Tuesday morning in Charleston.
The leak was at Lee and Capitol streets, and crews were on the scene. A Metro 911 dispatcher said West Virginia American Water had been notified.
