Residents in the area first started reporting problems with their water service late Tuesday night.

A recorded message from the Westmoreland County Municipal Authority stated that some customers had lost water service, while others may be experiencing low water pressure.

As of 3:30 a.m., the Westmoreland County Municipal Authority estimated that repairs could take 6-8 hours to complete, possibly longer.

A Peoples Gas spokesman said one of its crews was called to the area around 1:30 a.m. Tuesday to repair one of its service lines. The Peoples spokesman said the line ran to an abandoned house and had been damaged by a crew working on a water line. Peoples said it had completed repairs on its service line before 6 a.m. and there was never a gas leak.
