Line break leaves some Bellefonte residents without water

A water main break on Willowbank Street in Bellefonte left some residents without water for a portion of Tuesday.

Borough Manager Ralph Stewart said the break occurred near the Unimart, and the loss of water was contained to that immediate area. He had no information on exactly how many customers were without water.

The borough’s water crew begin attempting to solve the problem after the break at about 9:30 a.m., and he expects the work will be completed before the end of the day Tuesday.

“We’re working to get the water restored as soon as possible,” he said.
