SANDY, Utah (ABC 4 News) – Two houses in Sandy woke up to find water in their basements.
According to Sandy Public Utilities about 2 a.m. a pipe to a fire hydrant broke. It is believed that the pipe had frozen causing the break. The hydrant is uphill from a neighborhood on Bell Canyon Road.
The water from the hydrant flowed down a hill and into window wells of two homes.
One of the homes had about 14 inches of water in the basement.
The second home had soaked carpet in the basement.
Public Utility crews work through out the day to fix the damage to the water main.
Clean up crews assisted the homeowner with clean up of the water.
