Broken water main leaves 80 Baltimore homes without water

An 8-inch water main break in the 2600 block of Edmondson Avenue in West Baltimore left 80 homes without water Wednesday night, the city Department of Public Works said.

There were eight other active water main breaks in the city Wednesday night, according to the department, though they were not as serious.

The department said the number of breaks they were repairing as not as high as it was a couple of weeks ago, when freezing temperatures resulted in dozens of broken mains.
