ERIE COUNTY (WKBW) — The Erie County Water Authority announced there are several water main breaks throughout the county.

ECWA says over the last 24 hours there have been 13 water main breaks, which are the result of water lines being over pressurized due to the increased demand the warmer weather has caused.

The breaks, which are minor according to ECWA, are located in the following areas:

  • Amherst (7)
  • West Seneca (4)
  • Lancaster (1)
  • Lackawanna (1)

ECWA says customers may experience reduced water pressure and crews are responding to repair the breaks and fully restore service to customers impacted.
