COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - About three dozen customers were without water following a large water main break in Old Colorado City Sunday morning.

Colorado Springs Utilities responded to Armstrong Avenue just south of Uintah Street at 5 a.m. for the reported break. A spokesperson with the company tells 11 News an 8-inch main was affected.

There’s no estimation for how long repairs could take, but the main is in a residential area, so traffic for most should not be impacted.

Springs Utilities had water back to all customers by Sunday afternoon.

The cause of the break is unknown.
