Some Without Water Around Downtown Knoxville Due To Water Main Break  Near Market Square

Some people in downtown Knoxville are without water Thursday morning due to a water main break near Market Square.

The Knoxville Utilities Board said customers will be temporarily without water following a six inch water main break.

A KUB representative said at least 17 water services have been impacted by the leak, including businesses on Market Square and Gay Street. The utilities board was notified of the incident at 5:20 a.m. Crews estimated repairs to be completed in the next four to six hours.

Wall Street will be closed until 3 p.m. Thursday. Commuters parking in the Market Square Garage will need to use Walnut Street to access the parking area.

KUB said they have crews on the scene to help repair the issue.
