There has been a water main break this morning in Kapuskasing.

Manager of Public Works Eric Cote says the break happened on the laneway located behind Drury Street around 12:00pm.

Cote says public works has since slowed the flow of water in the area between Bowman and Empire avenues.

He says only segments of those two streets are dealing with a lack of water pressure at this time.

Cote says they expect to have the water main repaired and water pressure back to normal by 7:00pm tonight at the latest.
