• Water main break creates geyser in Observatory Hill


    A water main break has created a geyser in Pittsburgh.

    The break is in the 3900 block of Oakdale Street in Observatory Hill.

    Channel 11 talked to Valerie Ash, whose home is one of a couple without water.

    "When I saw this, I was just...I was just blown away. I couldn't believe it had gotten this big," said Ash. 

    Ash said PWSA told her it took them so long to respond to the break because their crew was patching a separate one across the city in Point Breeze. 

    Service should be restored sometime Wednesday morning.
