A water main break in Northwest Lubbock may leave some residents without water.
Late Wednesday afternoon, a contractor working near Erskine Avenue and Dover street damaged a water main. City water utility crews are working to get water shut off so they can assess the damage. The affected area is a 12-block residential district from Emory street to Dover street along Erskine avenue.
It's not known at this time how long it will take to repair the line or when water will be restored.
