UPDATE: The water main breaks were fixed around 3:30 p.m. on Friday. Road work due to the break continues.
SCRANTON, Pa. --Crews from Pennsylvania American Water worked all day on Friday to fix two water main breaks in Scranton.
A little bit down the road, Robert Delauretis said he`s been without water for hours
"It is ridiculous now I have no water since I don't know, 6 o'clock this morning maybe," said Delauretis of Moosic.
The disabled veteran says he's had nothing but problems when it comes to water since moving to this part of Moosic.
"If you don't have water forget about it that`s life right there. That's all we need," said Delauretis.
Earlier this morning water crews arrived to find water shooting out of several places along Davis Street.
While crews were working to fix one main break, another break happened farther down Pittston Avenue.
Pennsylvania American Water Company says 40 homes and business have been affected by the watery mess.
One of those businesses was The Penalty Box on Birney Avenue.
"This morning, the 6 o'clock news, I noticed it and I saw it and all the activity going on that we would be affected by this because of the dirty water," said Matthew Poplewski of The Penalty Box.
Places like The Penalty Box were given a water buffalo for customers and staff to use.
"The local water company sends us a portable water buffalo as they call it to give water to the employees and cooks to keep boiling on the stove and keep this place clean here," said Poplewski.
Crews are still working on fixing both water main breaks. The Pennsylvania American Water Company still doesn't know when it will be fixed.
