Water Superintendent Jake Raubach said the line was hit accidentally.
"It's an 8-inch line that runs north and south coming off of Highway 40," Raubach said. "There were some guys doing some soil samples and they hit it. Now we're in the process of putting in a couple line stops."
Raubach said line stops isolates on either side where the break is, so workers can dig out the pipe and repair it.
At press time, Raubach said he had no exact estimation on when the line would be fixed, but said it would be at least another four or five hours.
Raubach also said that no boil order has been issued and both water towers are online and full.
