A water main line break Monday diverted traffic in Defiance.
The break happened just before noon yesterday in the northbound lane of North Clinton at Sessions Street.
City officials say a four-inch hole was discovered in a six-inch cast iron pipe.
Crews pumped water to a nearby storm sewer.
Reports indicated that the water level in the nearby Diehl Park water tower had dropped three feet.
The leak did considerable damage to the road, tearing up a large area of pavement.
