Twin Falls (KMVT-TV)- An installation error is what caused Friday’s water line break in Twin Falls.

The line blew on Washington Street next to Glanbia Friday afternoon.

500,000 gallons of water spilled onto the road way.

The line sat at twelve feet below the ground. It caused quite a bit of damage to Washington Street. Traffic has been restricted through the area.

The repair will be covered by warranty. The City will not have to pay for the damages.

Repairs are ongoing and could take a couple weeks.
