Outside her Parkside home on Tuesday afternoon, Myra Mickey watched as a Baltimore public works employee labored several feet below her street to repair a broken water main. "They've been working around the clock," Mickey, 50, said of the city workers, who first arrived on her street late the night before, when her water also was switched off. "If they weren't here, I'd probably be getting a little heated under my collar. " The workers' presence was reassuring, but also came months after Mickey first began calling the city about suspicious cracks in the street, about water bubbling up, about the inadequacy of a brief repair job that seemed to do nothing "besides make a mess," she said.

More than 300 homes and businesses were without water in the Fells Point area Wednesday night after crews were forced to shut off service to repair a ruptured water line. Water service was restored early Thursday morning, according to the Baltimore Department of Public Works, but officials warned that low water pressure would last for hours. Workers shut down the 16-inch water main in order to make repairs to a 6-inch water line that broke in a vacant building in the 500 block of S. Broadway Tuesday night, according to DPW. A five-alarm fire that took hours to extinguish seriously damaged the same building in 2012.

He said it's not known yet what caused it, but age and weather are "the usual suspects. " Officials said that due to the location of the affected pipe -- the intersection of Solley Road and North Shore Road -- the work will require a temporary shutdown of several sewage pump stations to complete.
