BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The change in temperatures is bringing a familiar but unwanted problem in the area. Water main breaks.
A water main break was reported in downtown Baltimore on Wednesday.
The broken water main on Foxcroft St was repaired at around 9:15 p.m., but work still continued on Davis Street.
An 8-inch main broke on Davis Street near Saratoga, one of the main businesses in the area is Mercy Hospital.
Crews are shutting off valves to find the exact location of the break.
Saratoga Street is closed between Gilford and Calvert streets.
Operations at Mercy Hospital have not been impacted, but one or two apartment buildings on Davis Street have been affected and have no water.
“It shouldn’t be too terribly bad. People who work at Mercy who are coming in you will be able to get to your offices,” said Kurt Kocher with Department of Public Works.
Some residents are prepared downtown to lose water service during repairs.
“It’s unfortunate but it happens,” said Dax Johnson, a resident. “It just happened today, but if it doesn’t turn on for a couple of days, it’s a problem,”
