Water spills onto Vail Village streets
Vail, CO Colorado
VAIL, Colorado ” An apparent main break sent ankle-deep water streaming down Hanson Ranch Road in Vail Village, Colorado Wednesday night.
The break happened at the Mill Creek Court Building, the site of Troy’s Ski Shop, said Fire Marshal Mike McGee of the Vail Fire Department. It was reported at about 7:15 p.m.
Water flowed down Hanson Ranch Road and Bridge Street, McGee said. Crews from the Fire Department and the town of Vail Public Works Department scrambled to position sandbags to avoid damage to other buildings, such as the Red Lion.
The leak had been stopped by about 9:30 by crews from the Eagle River Water and Sanitation District.
There was about a foot of standing water in the basement of the Mill Creek Court Building, McGee said.
