Repairs made after water main break in Lincoln Place


PITTSBURGH - A water main break that sent water rushing down a street in Pittsburgh’s Lincoln Place neighborhood Sunday morning has been repaired.

A spokesman for Pennsylvania American Water said water service was restored in the area about 6 p.m.

The break happened before 9 a.m. at the intersection of Mifflin Road and Mohrbach Street. A cast iron pipe that is estimated to have been in use for more than 60 years ruptured, leaving about 50 customers without service.

At least one home in the area had a flooded basement due to the break.
