City workers were called out just after 8 a.m. Tuesday, July 9, to work on a large water leak between Elm and Oak streets on the north side of Olney. Large amounts of water collected at the intersection of Grand Ave. and Main Street and ran in the streets before the water was shut off and work on fixing the leak began by 8:45 a.m. City Administrator Danny Parker said water leaks of this magnitude are generally of little threat to the water supply as long as they are shut off quickly. He noted this leak was shut off at the main source by around 8:30 a.m. Tuesday.
