DUQUESNE, Pa. —
A massive water main break left nearly one-third of the people living in Duquesne without water service for the better part of a day.
Officials said a 16-inch water supply line ruptured sometime between 10 and 11 p.m. Monday at the intersection of Kennedy Avenue and Mifflin Street.
City of Duquesne officials said that approximately 1,500 residents in 800 households were left without service.
Crews were finally able to get water restored early Tuesday evening, but a boil order has been issued until further notice.
A water buffalo set up at St. Peter and Paul Byzantine Church at 701 Foster Avenue had been available to those without service.
