DETROIT (AP) - A Detroit Water and Sewerage Department building is closing for a day because of two water main breaks.

The city said in a statement that the emergency repairs are needed, prompting the closing Wednesday of the Water Board Building in downtown.

Officials say the water main breaks are causing water to leak into the basement and power is being shut off so repairs can be expedited.

A customer center at the building will be closed for the day, but two other locations are available. The building is expected to reopen Thursday.
