Water restored to Hagerstown homes

Water was restored to approximately 60 homes in the Jonathan Street area Friday afternoon.

The homes were without water Friday morning after a 16-inch water line broke, city Public Information Manager Karen Giffin said. The break occurred about 5 a.m. when the line was split, she said.

The problems with the line appear to have been caused by age, Water and Sewer Department Manager David Schindle said.
