CLEARFIELD -- A water main break in Clearfield sent a steady stream of drinking water into the air for about an hour Thursday before crews could stop the flow.
The break occurred shortly after 5 p.m. at 300 N. 1000 West, officials said.
The water main belongs to the Weber Basin Water Conservancy District, headquartered in Layton. The break was a result of a corroded pipe sleeve giving way, creating a 3-inch to 4-inch break in the line, said Tage Flint, Weber Basin Water general manager.
"The line is under pretty good pressure," he said.
Because of the water stored in the cities' reservoirs, there was no disruption of service, he said.
