Businesses and residents of Somerset are without water after a water main break Tuesday night.

Village crews were on the scene of what they call a major water main break at two different locations along a residential section of East Main Street.

A crewman told WHIZ’s Gabe Ross that he had shut off water to the entire village as a result of the water main break.

A second crewman working at the intersection of East Main Street and High Street near Somerset Elementary said that the water main break caused damage to the road along East Main Street/U.S. 22 and that residents may not have water restored until noon Wednesday.

Other village officials could not be reached or declined to comment, but Somerset Water Works Manager Andy From said a press release with more details would be forthcoming.
