Major piece of the puzzle arrives to complete Crescent Hill water main

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- Louisville Water crews have been putting in overtime to repair the water main that caused so much trouble last week.

20,000 pound pipes were placed in the ground and connected to the existing water main on Grinstead Drive and Crescent Court Monday.

Workers hope to have the pipes fully installed by Wednesday.

Once the water main is filled with water, Louisville Water plans to inspect a large section of this pipe using a tool called “PipeDiver,” a free-swimming inspection tool that uses the flow of water to move through the pipe.

About 30,000 customers were affected by the water main break.

While water supply is no longer an issue for those customers, residents want Grinstead Drive reopened as soon as possible.

"It's frustrating because you can't just walk out, jump in your car and go places. I'm ready for it to be over. It's interesting to see what's going on but I've had enough of that," said Crescent Hill resident Jean Randles.

Louisville Water crews hope to have the street reopened by the end of the week.

Officials are also working with customers to reimburse them for damages.

It's still unclear what actually caused the water main break.
