Some Harrisburg residents are still under a boil water advisory following another water main break. CBS 21 learned from the Chair of the Public Works Committee, Sandra Reid, that the boil water advisory could last until Wednesday.
The water main section under the south section of Cameron Street burst on Sunday night.
Crews worked through the night Sunday to repair the cracked main. The road was re-opened shortly before rush hour on Monday. But for a city plagued by sinkholes, water main breaks are becoming a new problem.
Last Wednesday another water main break, this time it was at the intersection of Cameron and Herr.
Cameron was shut down last Wednesday night during rush-hour and by the next morning it re-open.
Mayor Linda Thompson says these pipes date back to the 1800s and that the breaks are an act of mother nature. She says the freezing pipes are cracking and causing breaks.
Residents are asked to boil their water until they are notified it is safe to use.
A boil water advisory remains in effect after another water main break in Harrisburg.
Early this morning crews re-opened the 1500 block of South Cameron Street, which is the site of the city's second water main break in a week.
Neighbors tell CBS 21 News they saw water coming up from the street yesterday and when they got home they didn’t have any water. Nine people were forced out of the home because of the break.
