Sun., 8:41 pm: Austintown homes lose water

AUSTINTOWN — Sections of Austintown are without water this evening. Several businesses and restaurants in the area are also without water at this time.

One of the water tanks in the township is way below its normal level, so there must be a water line break somewhere in Austintown, township Trustee Jim Davis told Tribune Chronicle news partner WYTV 33 News. The break is affecting Youngstown water customers in both Austintown and Canfield Townships.

A Youngstown Water Department crew was dispatched to Austintown to search for the leak.

Residents are asked not to call Austintown police or fire dispatch about the loss of water unless they see a water main break on or near their property.
