Water Restored After Earlier Water Main Break

Posted: Updated:

The Philadelphia Water Department has restored water to residents in Fishtown after a water main that broke overnight.

The 10-inch water main broke around 1:00am Sunday at E. Girard and E. Montgomery Avenue.  About ten homes were affected, but service was restored just before 6:30 P.M.

Girard Avenue will be closed from Susquehanna Avenue to Palmer Streets while crews work on repairing the break. Crews hope to have both eastbound lanes and one westbound lane on Girard ave reopened sometime Sunday night.
