In response to Re: Water Entering Basement Around Water Main
It sounds like surface runoff is finding its way down the outside of your foundation and then following the water main in. You could dry it off and caulk around the pipe where it comes through the wall with 100% silicon caulk. However it will continue to leak inside the block wall. To completely stop it you will have to dig down the outside of your foundation and caulk that side as well. If you plan on doing this be careful you don't hit the water line when you dig you should be able to get a rough idea how far down it is by measuring from the top of the foundation on the inside.
