WEST VILLAGE — A water main break flooded West Village streets Wednesday evening and caused delays to 1, 2 and 3 trains, officials said.
The break occurred at about 6:51 p.m. near 175 West 13th St. near Seventh Avenue, FDNY officials said. The water flooded streets and the 14th Street 1 train station, officials said.
A spokesman for the FDNY said there were no reports of people trapped in the station.
The Department of Environmental Protection said it found a break in a 12-inch water main pipe when it responded. The leak was stopped by roughly 8 p.m.
The agency did not know how many people were affected by the water main break or when their service would return. Crews were working on replacing the broken section of pipe, a spokesman said.
According to the MTA's website, there was no 1 train service between South Ferry and Times Square-42nd Street, as well as no 2 and 3 train service between Chambers Street and Times Square.
All three lines were running with delays in both directions, while 2 trains were running on the 5 line from Nevins Street to 149th Street-Grand Concourse.
Witnesses said Con Edison had been working at the site prior to the deluge, but a spokeswoman for the agency said she did not know what caused the main break.
The broken pipe was replaced and water service was restored around 8 a.m. on Thursday morning, a DEP spokesman said. The broken section of the water main pipe will undergo a forensic examination to determine what damaged it, he said.
The MTA said it had no comment on the incident.
