Water tower ruptures in Columbus

COLUMBUS, Ga. (AP) - Officials with Columbus Water Works are
trying to determine what caused a massive steel water tower to
rupture.

The tower collapsed just before 4 a.m. Saturday, spilling an
estimated 6 million gallons of untreated water.

Water Works President Bob Tant said the city's drinking water
remains safe and did not disrupt the city's supply.

Tant said it could take weeks to learn why the 14-year-old
structure failed.

There were no injuries.
