A Wichita intersection could be closed for a couple of days due to a water main break.
The break occurred at around 1:15 a.m. at Mount Vernon and Hillside, on the Southeast side. Several public works crews were called, because the break was large enough to flood the intersection.
At 4:00 p.m., 75 customers were without water.
A 12-inch cast iron water main broke. Once it is repaired, crews will
begin assessing the damage to the intersection, then they'll be able to get an idea of how long it will take to fix.
