Snow doesn’t stop crew from fixing water leak in Providence

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) – An apparent leak in a service line left approximately 15 Providence homes without working water for several hours Thursday, but city workers were able to resolve the issue.

Dyana Koelsch, a spokesperson for the Providence Water Supply Board, confirmed the leak was on Spokane Street, which is located off Charles Street in the city’s North End.

Koelsch said the leak was not directly related to the storm, but the snow made it more difficult to fix.
