Water Main Break in Brewerytown Leaves Residents Without Water

Water was restored to about 35 homes following a 6-inch water main break in the 1300 block of North Newkirk Street in Philadelphia Friday.

NBC10 viewer Megain McCray reported the break to NBC10. She said that construction workers had caused the break and left the scene earlier in the day.

McCray said workers were on her street working on a sinkhole, but left the road torn up. Soon after, she said the water began to rise, "I just seen water come up out of the hole."

McCray documented the situation on her Twitter account.

Philadelphia Streets Department reported that the 6-inch main had been repaired. There was no official cause of the break.
