Hamburg, NY (WBEN) The Erie County Water Authority says a water main break is being worked on in Hamburg.

The ECWA says the leak was isolated and it has been determined that there is a break in a 48 inch transmission main on Lake Shore Road.

Work is being performed by both ECWA crews and outside contractors to expedite the repair, says the ECWA. As work continues, Lake Shore Road will remain closed between Lakeview and Eckhardt roads.

“At this time, some customers in pocket areas north and west of the Village of Hamburg may be experiencing low water pressure, and ECWA is making adjustments to its system to increase pressure in those areas as it simultaneously repairs the transmission main," says the ECWA in a statement. 

Residents in that area are being asked to conserve water to the best of their ability this evening as repairs continue.
