Water main break at Alameda and Newton creates plume of water
Last Updated: 124 days ago
DENVER - A water main break in Denver sent water shooting more than 20 feet into the air.
The break happened around 9:30 a.m. on Alameda Avenue at Newton Court, between Sheridan and Federal boulevards.
Denver Water said it appears that a valve broke. The company is working to isolate the break.
There is a hill in the area, so Denver Water has asked the city of Denver to send out sand trucks to protect drivers from a layer of ice that will likely form, said Travis Thompson with Denver Water.
