Water Main Break Turns Butler Pike Into River

Posted: Updated:

In Montgomery County, water service is mostly restored after a water main break on Butler Pike near Ridge Avenue.

Water began gushing out in Whitemarsh Township a little before 7:30 a.m.

Aqua Pennsylvania says the break was in a 12-inch cast-iron main.

Homes and businesses in Plymouth, Whitemarsh, Whitpain, East Norriton and Norristown were affected.

The road around the break also buckled because of the water. Crews are on the scene making repairs.

Just three hours after the break, service was restored to all but 10 customers.
