Water main break in Lawrenceville leaves mess behind for residents



PITTSBURGH - At least two homes in Lawrenceville were filled with water Thursday after a water main break on Natrona Way.

Officials said the break happened around 6:30 a.m.

Joann Fink said she discovered the damage at her parent's home after a neighbor called to warn her.

"My neighbor called me this morning to let me know that water was coming out of the ground at my mom's house just to give me a warning," Fink said. "There's water going up onto their hot water tank, her furnace, her washer, her dryer. It's a good foot or more in there."

Crews began repairing the break Thursday morning.
