LEXINGTON, Ky. (WKYT) - Crews are still out in the area of Rosemont Gardens and Lane Allen on Tuesday to repair a major water main break.

Kentucky American Water tells us that the water main is repaired, but they are still working on “clean-up.”

The company says crews repaired the main pipe and restored water to the homes in the area around 6 o’clock Monday night.

We’ve also learned that the company’s insurance will cover the damages to homes and businesses.

That’s a relief to some homeowners we spoke with. One texting us saying it provides a sense of reassurance after all the frustration and chaos of the last 24 hours.

That same homeowner told us he was out of town when the break happened. So, he’s been getting updates over the phone. Right now. he says he’s still waiting on an insurance adjuster to come to the home and estimate the damage.

We know that ServPro is out on-site at the Rosemont Baptist Church.

Crews are continuing to clean up, repaving sidewalks, fixing the road, and even laying down and watering new sod for lawns that were damaged in the flooding.

The road in the area was already shut down for crews to work on utilities as part of the Clay Mills Road expansion project.
