Water main break shoots water above telephone poles

MADISON, Wis. - A water main break that shot water above telephone poles has closed North Charter Street, officials said.

Dane County officials said the break was reported around 5:10 a.m. in the 200 block of Charter Street on the University of Wisconsin-Madison campus.

Madison police said they received reports that the water was high enough that it went over telephone poles in the area.

Madison Water Utility officials said the break is on a UW-Madison water main. Calls to the UW Plumbing Shop have not yet been returned.

It is not clear how long the road will be closed.
