Some residents in Penn Township struggled again with water woes Monday evening, just hours after a boil-water advisory was lifted.

A contractor struck a water pipe while working on Harrison City-Export Road, which was closed Monday for improvements. When the service line was hit, it pulled the pipe from the Municipal Authority of Westmoreland County's main line, forcing the utility to shut off water, Tom Ceraso, assistant manager at the authority, said.

Water service was interrupted for about 20 to 30 homes in the Harrison City area late Monday afternoon as crews worked to replace a 30-foot pipe. Ceraso said he expected service to be back to normal Monday night.

The Harrison City-Export Road work was anticipated to close the road beginning at 7 a.m. Monday through 5 p.m. Tuesday, but township police chief John Otto said the water pipe issue may delay the road's opening.

Monday's water stoppage was not related to the boil-water advisory.
