LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - The Louisville Water Company has been working to fix water main breaks.
Thursday morning, crews worked to fix the break at 1st Street near Kentucky Street in downtown Louisville forcing some drivers to detour.
Another water main break kept them busy along St. Catherine Street between 2nd and 3rd Streets.
The Metropolitan Sewer District said the water from those two breaks mixed with raw sewage. They estimate more than 74,000 gallons of the mixture spilled into Beargrass Creek and cleanup is not possible.
Earlier this week, a 20-inch main break buckled part of the pavement on 7th Street near Magnolia Street. Crews hope to reopen the road by Friday night.
