SHARON, Pa. (WKBN) – A water main break in Sharon set off a boil alert for nearly 200 customers in a nearby community.
A 12-inch water line, dating back to 1920, broke along A Street between W. State and Columbia streets around 12:30 a.m. Friday. It has been temporarily paved.
The road flooded and some of the pavement broke apart as a result.
Aqua will be replacing a 500-foot section of the broken water line with a new 8-inch ductile iron main. Work is expected to begin next week.
The water was shut off around 2 a.m., leaving about 25 customers in Sharon without water. Service was restored by 10 a.m.
Residents living in these neighborhoods in Masury were told to boil their water until further notice:
- South of Lincoln Street
- North of W. State Street
- West of State Line Road
- East of Linden Street
- East of Brightview Avenue
That alert was lifted Saturday at 1 p.m.
