BUTLER TOWNSHIP -- A water main break has been causing problems for people in Luzerne County.

According to Aqua Pennsylvania, about 1,000 homes in Beech Mountain Lakes near Hazleton are affected by the leak.  Crews spent Sunday searching for the leak but were unable to find it.

Aqua PA is making arrangements to have water dumped into the system so the development does not run the risk of running out of water.

In the meantime, water officials are asking people to conserve.
