Water main break in West Philadelphia

Yet another water main break in Philadelphia sent water flowing down a street overnight.

The latest main break happened around 12:30 a.m. Tuesday at the corner of Market Street and 42nd Street in West Philadelphia.

It took Water Department crews about a half hour to stop the water flow from the 12 inch main.

Fire department, police and Philadelphia Water Department crews along with L&I were on the scene inspecting houses and businesses for any water or structural damage.
