As residents drove to work Wednesday morning in the area of North Kentucky and Curtis streets, they may seen water gushing from a ditch.

A water leak occurred on Curtis Street near the intersection of Curtis and Kentucky. Patrick Kelly, Mexico Area Operations Manager for Missouri American Water Company said Wednesday morning he did not know the extent of the break. "It is a six-inch main break and we don't know the severity of it," Kelly said.

Kelly was not sure Wednesday morning if water in the area would need to be shut off. "If we do shut down it will be minimal," he said. He added the water has to be shut off, it would probably be in the main area of the leak.

M&M Trenching was digging near the leak to see if the problem could be found.
