West University residents and drivers on Weslayen can’t help but notice water along the curb.  Over the past week, water has been spewing onto Weslayen not far from the corner of Bissonnet and Weslayan.  It’s unknown how many thousands of gallons of water has gone into the street near the Randall’s Grocery Store since the leak began.
