Residents living along South Cameron Street are cleaning up after Harrisburg City’s latest water main break. It happened around 10:30 p.m. on Saturday night. A boil water advisory has been issued for people living in Harrisburg’s south section of the city, which includes homes along Paxton Street to the city line at 13th street, according to city councilwoman Sandra Reid. The advisory is also in effect for people living in housing projects from the 1100-1900 block of South Cameron Street, Reid said.
Councilwoman Reid was at the scene last night and tweeted that some residents living in the 1600 block of South Cameron Street had up to four feet of water in their basement.
Red Cross responded to the scene to assist those affected by the broken water main.
No word on how long it will take crews to make repairs.
This is the second time in a week that a water main has broken on Cameron Street.
