(Updated 3:44pm 6th September 2013)
A water main has burst, sending waves of water flooding one of Truro's main streets.
Some shops at the end of Boscawen Street had to lay out sandbags on Friday morning.
South West Water has told Pirate FM that the main was hit by workers from another utility company.
An inspector has been sent out to carry out repairs, after reports from people living nearby that they are having trouble with their supply.
Bosses say customers living in the TR1 area may experience discoloured water and they are being urged to run the cold kitchen tap to clear it.
