BEAVER and WESTMORELAND Co., Pa. —

Residents in Raccoon and Potter townships in Beaver County continue to be under a boil-water advisory on Sunday as crews work to restore service. 

These water main breaks have left 2,300 customers with little to no water since Friday afternoon, forcing many people to fill containers at the Aliquippa Water Authority on Saturday.

Another water main break in Irwin, Westmoreland County, affected 35 homes on Pennsylvania and Grant streets.

“My husband came out this morning and he stepped in the yard. He stepped up to his hips in the sinkhole,” said Beth Neil, who is one of many without water.

Crews said they were able to fix the break on Pennsylvania Avenue Saturday night, but there is still no word on when repairs will be finished on Grant Street.
