AUBURN, Maine (NEWS CENTER) - A water main break on Court Street in Auburn has been fixed.

John Storer from the Auburn Water District says a water main break on Court Street in Auburn left 30 homes without water.

He says a private contractor was working on a natural gas line when the excavator bucket hit and broke the water main.

The Water District will provide bottled water to the affected homes. Storer says after the main is fixed, those homes will have to boil water for at least twenty-four hours until the Water District can test the water and make sure it's safe to drink.

Water was restored to those homes by 10:30 Monday night.
