WILLIAMSBURG — Water spewed from the ground on Jackson and Leonard Streets in Brooklyn Tuesday as the Department of Environmental Protection struggled to pinpoint the source of the leak, a spokesman for the agency said.
The leak started around 9:10 a.m. just blocks from the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway, fire officials said.
A DEP crew was on scene Tuesday afternoon trying to figure out whether it was one of its water mains that had broken or if it was a direct line to a residence that was leaking.
The agency said the block would likely be shut down throughout the afternoon, the spokesman added.
Con Edison crews were also on scene throughout the morning but determined none of its cables had been damaged, a spokesman said.
