Some Hagerstown water customers were without water until about 2 p.m. Wednesday after city officials discovered a break on a main water line near the exit ramp of eastbound Interstate 70 at Sharpsburg Pike.
The break affected customers in the south end of Hagerstown, including those living south of Wilson Boulevard, Oakmont Drive and the South Pointe development. Customers living between Oak Ridge Drive and I-70 between South Potomac Street and Sharpsburg Pike were also affected.
Customers were without water or experienced low water pressure due to the diminished flow caused by the leak. Service in those areas returned to near normal once the leak was isolated.
Customers in those areas may have noticed discolored water conditions because of the break, Hagerstown Water Department Engineer David Shindle said.
