Water main breaks outside Pittsburgh’s UPMC Presbyterian Hospital

PITTSBURGH — A water main break along Fifth Avenue in Pittsburgh’s Oakland neighborhood caused a sidewalk to start buckling early Wednesday morning.

The break was reported about 4 a.m. outside UPMC Presbyterian Hospital, between Atwood Street and Oakland Avenue.

Water flowed over the sidewalk and down Fifth Avenue.

Crews from the Pittsburgh Water and Sewer Authority were called to the scene.

PWSA officials said the break happened in a 6-inch water main, and no customers are without service as a result of it.
