ALIQUIPPA, Pa. (AP) - Crews have restored water service to more than 1,200 customers nearly 24 hours after a water main break in Beaver County.

County 911 dispatchers were alerted to the Aliquippa Water Authority break about 10:30 a.m. Sunday.

The water line broke along Tyler Street in Aliquippa, but was affecting customers not only in that city but in nearby Hopewell, Raccoon and Potter townships.

Water plant operator Don Anderson says the cause of the break was under investigation. Service was restored to the final few customers by 9 a.m. Monday.

The authority is serviced by older lines, one of which broke on the same street in January, affecting about 2,300 customers.

Aliquippa is about 20 miles northwest of Pittsburgh.
