ST LOUIS (KMOV) – Repairs have begun after a street in south St. Louis collapsed on Wednesday evening when a water main break broke near the ongoing street project.
St. Louis City says its water division is responsible for the break, and that underground pipes caused the rupture.
The Metropolitan St. Louis Sewer District had previously been working on a street project near Utah Street and Roger Place before the water main break collapsed nearly 25 feet of pavement into the work area.
According to an MSD spokesperson, the company had not been working near the water main break.
The St. Louis Water Department capped the water main break, but MSD is looking into what may have caused the collapse and who is responsible for the accident.
