Water main break in Greenwood shuts down intersection

GREENWOOD, Ind. -- A massive water main break in Greenwood early this morning was quite the sight.

For more than 4 hours Saturday morning, water was shooting up from the ground, nearly 50 feet in the air, like a geyser! This happened at the intersection of Smith Valley Road and Old Meridian Street.

For a majority of the morning, Meridan Street was closed off as crews from Indiana American Water and the City of Greenwood worked to repair the break.

Several homes and area businesses also did not have water, that included the Greenwood Police department. We are waiting to find out if that water has been restored.

A spokesperson from Indiana American Water does not believe the break is weather-related.

While the intersection is closed, drivers can use the old Greenwood Middle School or use Madison Avenue as alternate routes.
