MILWAUKEE - Neighbors on Milwaukee's south side had a tough time getting ready for work Friday morning after waking up with no water.
However, crews finally fixed the water main break that caused the service outage.
Milwaukee Department of Public Works crews spent the overnight hours trying to fix the break at the corner of South 22nd Street and West Grange Avenue.
DPW Spokeswoman Sandy Rusch Walton told Newsradio 620 WTMJ's Jon Byman that people in the area who were affected should "turn on their cold water tap. Turn on slowly. Turn on all your faucets and let the water run for a while."
What the city first thought would be a few hours of neighbors having no water on Thursday turned into a major inconvenience.
