Residents in one Port Richmond neighborhood were coping with a water main break Friday.

The 6-inch main broke Friday morning on Salmon Street near the intersection of Ontario Street.

About fifty homes on the north side of Ontario were without water.

Philadelphia Water Department crews were working to repair the broken main.

The utility said it hoped to have water service restored by the end of the day.
