Puyallup police ask drivers to avoid some streets after water main break

PUYALLUP, Wash. — The Puyallup Police Department is asking drivers to avoid 5th Street Northwest and West Stewart because of flooding.

Officials say that the Roadway is closed in all directions due to a water main break.

“To be clear even though the water is not…. This is a water main break. It’s not the sewer. Yes we know it’s after Thanksgiving but it’s still not the sewer line,” said a spokesperson.

Public Works crews have since begun to repair the damage.
