NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. -- You might have noticed crews working on Genesee Street, in New Hartford, near Daylight Donuts.

It wasn't a water main break, it was a leak, detected using the Mohawk Valley Water Authority's leak detection system.

It allows crews to listen for leaks in the system, before a water main break occurs and the water pours onto roadways.

The water authority says they didn't have to turn off the water Thursday to fix the problem.
