UPDATE: According to PA American Water, crews have isolated the break located in the 500 block of Main Street, Dickson City. The water is shut off from the area of the I-81 overpass to Boulevard Avenue.
Crews are excavating the area of the break to begin repairs. Because there are multiple water mains in this area, not all customers in the area of the shutdown are affected, making it difficult to provide a number of customers impacted during the shutdown.
Main Street is closed between Bowman and Grier Streets. Drivers are urged to use alternate routes.
A water tanker is available for customers in the 500 block of Main Street. Customers should bring their own containers when visiting a tanker for water.
