MADISON, Wis. (WMTV) 15-20 homes are without water on Wednesday morning on Madison’s north side after a large water main break.

The break happened on North Sherman Avenue down the street from Sherman Middle School.

Crews at the scene told NBC15 a pipe broke in two. They have been working since 2 a.m. to get it fixed.

Traffic in that area of North Sherman Avenue is down to one lane.

Crews said they hope to turn the water back on for folks in a couple hours.
