DENVER - A water main break in north Denver created a 10-by-20-foot hole in the street on Monday afternoon, Denver Water said.
The 12-inch main ruptured about 3:30 p.m. on Osage Street between West 52nd Avenue and Berkeley Place, said Denver Water spokesman Travis Thompson.
Business owner Leslie Silverman told 7NEWS the water came near her warehouse, but didn't enter the building. She owns D & L Art Glass Supply at 1440 W. 52 Ave.
Denver Water crews responded to the scene, along with police and firefighters, and the water was soon shut off.
Thompson said it will take until about 4 a.m. to repair the pipeline, clear mud covering the street and repave and reopen the street. He said there was no property damage and only Silverman's building was without water service.
