Lee County - - An electrical error is to blame for a major water leak in Lee County Monday afternoon.
The water tower on Highway 82 started gushing water before five Monday afternoon. So much water leaked, a lot of it flowed through the security fence into a nearby drainage ditch.
We were already there when a worker from the lee County Utilities Authority came to check it out. Turns out, it happened because of a power failure with the system that coordinates with the wells.
"It doesn't happen often but it can happen, we've got all the tanks full of water so we'll just work through the problem," says General Manager Chris Boswell.
Workers had to turn off the well manually. They say it won't affect anyone's water and they're working out the kinks with the communication system.
