DESTIN — About 2,500 gallons of reclaimed water may have leaked from a Destin Water Users’ pipe in Destin on Saturday, officials say.

Destin Water Users received a call about 1:30 p.m. Saturday about the leak at the Vintage Apartments, 2002 98 Palms Blvd., behind the Winn Dixie.

DWU said the leak was coming from a new meter they recently set.

The leak was stopped at 1:50 p.m.

DWU estimated about 2,500 gallons might have leaked before it was shut off.

The water percolated into the ground and did not affect any waterway or stormwater area.
