City of Tulsa water department workers repaired a break of a 10-inch line near Memorial Drive early Wednesday.

The location is just east of the intersection of Memorial on 44th Street.

Worker say a private contractor accidentally drilled into the water line causing the break at about 2 a.m.  The break was in an industrial area.

As a precaution, a city truck held up a nearby power pole, so it wouldn't fall down while crews work on the line.  

The water department says service was restored just before 6 a.m.
