Massive water leak flows for hours near 8th Wonder Brewery

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) -- A water main break flooded surrounding streets Tuesday morning in east downtown Houston.

ABC13 received reports of water shooting high above a building at Hutchins Street and Polk Street around 4:30 a.m.

Our photographer arrived, and sure enough, water was spraying into the air.

This was happening not far from 8th Wonder Brewery, which is on Hutchins and Dallas Street.

A Public Works crew was spotted on scene, and the water was finally shut off around 8:10 a.m.


By 8:56 a.m., all the water had receded.

The intersection at Hutchins and Polk was already blocked due to construction.
