Hundreds of Beaver County residents are waking up to water this morning after nearly 24 hours without service.
Officials of Raccoon, one of the many communities impacted, said repairs to a water main break wrapped up early this morning on a water line along Tyler Street in Aliquippa.
Crews had been working throughout the night on fixing the break in the line, which is owned by the Aliquippa Water Authority.
County emergency officials were notified at about 10:30 a.m. the water line had burst, affecting numerous homes in parts of Aliquippa, Hopewell, Raccoon and Potter.
Water buffalos were stationed in various communities for residents’ use.
