Major work will be required to repair a broken water main in northeast Portland.
The Portland Water Bureau shut down water service between Northeast Prescott and Wygant from Northeast 102nd to 105th Avenue Friday night.
People living nearby have been notified, including about 100 apartment units.
The water main is ruptured in two places, according to crews at the scene.
Large equipment is required to fix the situation and repairs are expected to be completed by sometime Saturday morning.
