After working through the night OMU has repaired both of the water main breaks.
14 News reports All of Daviess County is now under a State of Emergency following a water main break at the old Owensboro Municipal Utilities water plant early yesterday.
Owensboro Police say a water main leak flooded the 2000 block of E 4th. Street. OMU officials say there were actually two main breaks, a 20 inch and 24 inch.
Crews were able to cap one of the breaks late yesterday and worked through the night to cap the other one, eventually getting it capped early this morning.
A Boil Water Advisory will continue until further notice.
