Water restored, Pearl Road open after Strongsville water main break

STRONGSVILLE, OH (WOIO) - The Cleveland Water Department said crews are steadily working to determine what caused a 24 inch water main break at Pearl and Boston Roads in Strongsville.

According to spokesman John Goersmeyer, the break happened late Friday night into Saturday morning.

Goersmeyer said that due to fact that the piping is concrete as opposed to cast iron or steel, and the sheer size of the break, repairs are going to take a bit of time to complete.

As of 5:30 p.m., water to the main has been turned off, but no one is without water. Earlier in the day, some Brunswick residents had no water and low pressure, but things are back to normal.

Goersmeyer said the people who were affected may have air in the lines or discolored water, and to let their faucets run for a few minutes until the water is clear. There is no boil advisory.

Strongsville Police were on scene Saturday morning to assist with traffic although no streets have been closed.

19 Action News Reporter Bill Safos observed a major water main valve being shut off before Cleveland Water trucks left the scene.

There is no timeline for the repairs, according to Goersmeyer.

Check back for more details as they become available.
