Regional Utilities crews are spending most of the week trying to fix a water transmission line that burst Sunday afternoon on the Clyde Wells Bridge.

Regional Utilities officials say they immediately turned off the water after they were notified about the problem.

The broken water line did not affect any residents in the area.

Melissa Pilcher, General Manager for the company says this has never happened before, and they will do everything they can to make sure it never happens again.

"We inspect everything yearly, and they take a look at that and replace anything that needs to be replaced,” said Pilcher. “We will continue doing that to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."

Crews were already scheduled to do annual maintenance work on the bridge.

Utility crews still aren't sure what caused the water line to burst, but cold weather could be a factor.
