Wausau Public Works says the broken water main on the city's north side has been fixed.


Crews spent much of Wednesday evening on the scene of a water main break on Wausau's north side. It happened just before 7 near the intersection of 6th Avenue and Norton Street.

Our reporter said water could be seen running for several blocks and a part of 6th Avenue had to be closed off.

A lieutenant with the Wausau Police Department tells us while crews did have the ability to shut off the water completely, they chose not to, out of concerns for excessive freezing.

Crews appeared to have the situation under control.
