DUNMORE, Pa. — The water is coming back on in parts of Lackawanna County. Several communities spent the holiday dry after a main break.
Crews from Pennsylvania American Water on Reeves Street in Dunmore working to repair the break early Tuesday morning told Newswatch 16 the main is fixed and the water is back on.
This all started Monday morning when a 24-inch main along Reeves Street broke just before 9 a.m.
Officials from Pennsylvania American water say nearly 4,000 homes and businesses in Dunmore, Jessup, Olyphant, and Throop lost water.
Businesses throughout those communities were forced to close for the holiday.
Officials say the water is back on, but it may be discolored, or there may be low water pressure.
Reeves Street remains closed as crews wrap up work.
