Nearly a foot of water engulfed the area around Martin Street and Westminster Avenue in Penticton after construction crews hit a water main Monday morning.
The incident caused water to flood the area, however, water was confined to the road and sidewalk.
Simone Blais with the City of Penticton, says water had to be shut off affecting some businesses on the north end of Martin.
She says the water should be restored early this afternoon.
Blais says the water has been cleaned up while "full clean-up will probably take until the end of the day."
Crews are working in the area as part of Penticton's downtown revitalization project.
The $1.25-million project includes enhanced sidewalks, new lighting and street furniture, infrastructure upgrades and flexible space for merchants.
