A water leak was discovered under Main Avenue in downtown Park Rapids early Friday morning.

The leak came from one of the new water services under Main Avenue. Crews began digging into a portion of the street between Second and Third Street Friday morning to fix the leak.

"It's unfortunate," said project engineer Jon Olson. "But RL Larson was on top of this and were working on it as soon as it was discovered."

Olson said it was unknown what caused the leak at this point but it was an issue with the pipe or curb stop.
