Water throughout the city was turned off at 12- 30 this afternoon.
A joint of pipe was old and rotting, and was coming out of the bottom of the tower.
City officials say you could actually see the water flowing out the bottom of the tower.
So, for the last several hours, workers have been welding, fixing the problem on the inside, and now they're inside the tank, welding inside.
Workers say repairs are going well ... but even after they finish the process ... It will still take awhile for the water tower to fill back up.
