Water main break in University City

Posted: October 17, 2012

A 12-inch water main broke in University City this morning, forcing the Philadelphia Water Department to shut off nearby service, and causing traffic to slow.

John DiGiulio, a spokesman for the department, said crews were at the scene of the break around Market street between 42nd and 43 Streets.

DiGiulio said he did not have an estimate on when repairs would be complete and water service turned on for the block.

The break is not on the scale of Saturday's 36-inch transmission pipe break in Old City that rushed five million to six million gallons of water through that area.
