Ishpeming water main break leaves some residents without water

MARQUETTE- Some Ishpeming residents are without water this morning after a water main break at Oak Street and Ely Street.

The break occurred at 3 a.m. today. Water valves were shutoff in the area to allow Ishpeming Department of Public Works employees to work on the problem. Residents from Pine Street to Lake Street and Empire Street to Euclid Street have been without water for about five hours as of 9:30 a.m. and will be without water for about another hour.
