Crews now expect service to be restored by this evening, according to Kurt Kocher, a spokesman for Baltimore's Department of Public Works. Meanwhile they are bringing bottled drinking water to residents in the area.

Kocher says the city is spending more than a billion dollars to refurbish and replace older lines such as this one.
