    According to the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority, the leak on 31st Street happened on a private property line.

    Crews helped shut the water off as a courtesy, but the owner is responsible for repairs.

    Initially, the PWSA said customers on Butler Street from 39th to 42nd streets were the only people impacted, but that expanded.
