Some residents have been without water since yesterday after an Elliot Lake Public Works crew located an emergency water main break along Highway 108 in the Oakland Boulevard area
City projects director Steve Antunes says the leak was identified on the large water main that feeds the new sub-area of the city along Highway 108.
He says the crew began work on the repairs yesterday afternoon and it is hoped the work will be completed by late in the day today.
Antunes adds the work will also cause discolouration of drinking water in all areas along Hillside Drive North and the Pearson Drive area.
He adds some residents or businesses have received a boil water advisory as a result.
