KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A water department project impacted people and businesses in the Waldo area late Wednesday morning.

The Waldo Library Branch closed shortly before noon because of the issue. A spokesperson for the library said a water main break impacted the area near East 75th Street and Grand Avenue.

Kansas City’s water department clarified and said crews are working to install a new pipe to the man, and the project doesn’t involve a water main break.

A total of five buildings are without water until the work is complete. The city expects the water to be restored to the buildings Wednesday afternoon.

The library plans to post updates to its social media accounts and website.
