PITTSBURGH - The cold Pittsburgh weather has caused water main breaks, and the water main breaks have left people without water, including Harold Cammon.
The 79-year-old lives in Homewood-Brushton and said he hasn’t had water for a week.
“This has been going on since seven or eight days ago,” he said.
Channel 11 reporter Renee Kaminski reports Cammon keeps a bucket in his kitchen sink to collect the little water that trickles out. When the bucket fills up, Cammon lugs the bucket to his second-floor bathroom. He uses the water to shower and flush the toilet.
“I don’t try to take a bath because I would have to carry too much water,” he said.
Cammon is recovering from heart and shoulder surgery and said he carries the bucket upstairs 15 to 20 times a day.
Water officials said they weren’t aware of the problem. They hope to have Cammon's water service restored by Tuesday night.
