The Water Department tells Action News that ongoing work on a 12-inch main, not a break, is what led to a water outage in the Roxborough section of Philadelphia early Wednesday morning.

The work is happened at the intersection of Ridge Avenue and Green Lane.

Officials say crews had to shut the water off from midnight to 8:00 a.m. in order to get the valves fixed. Ridge Avenue was closed while the repairs were made.

The water is back on and now workers are finishing up so that the street can be reopened.
