Soggy Morning in Roxborough

Water main break affects several homes

14 homes in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia were damp Saturday morning, according to the Philadelphia Water Department.

A 30" transmission water pipe broke on Summit Avenue in the early hours of the morning.  The break sent water coursing into the basements of several homes on both Summit Avenue and Cheswick Road.

Neighbors said the whole block was affected.

Water crews fixed the pipe and restored service around 9:30 am Saturday and a claims adjuster was sent to homes to survey the damage.
