WEST MIFFLIN, Pa. —

Several homes in West Mifflin have reported flooding after a big water main break.

The 8-inch break was reported on Conlin Street, and sent water flowing through the cemetery and down the hillside.

“I slept through it, but when I woke up, I saw it was ankle high in the basement,” said neighbor Andrew Harbulak.

Muddy water flooded Harbulak’s basement.

Channel 11 News was there as crews worked to fix the break Tuesday afternoon.

Neighbors said they’ve complained about water flowing into their homes for about a year.  They suspected it was from an aging water main.

The water company said it plans to pay for the cleanup.
