Okmulgee Public Works working to repair water leak

The City of Okmulgee are fighting a water leak today that started early this morning near 7th and wood drive.  The leak was reported around 1:30 a.m.   A lot of water began to accumulate around 7th and Choctaw.  Paul Orosco was on scene to bring us some footage of the problem. (SEE VIDEO BELOW)Work crews discovered a 10 foot pipe of major size was the root of the problem, but are still working to decipher the problem. 

Drivers should be cautious as they come through Okmulgee on Hwy 75. The west lane of Wood drive is blocked off beginning at 6th and Wood drive on south to 7th. street.  We will keep you updated on the situation.
