HOUSTON -

Several homes and businesses in southwest Houston Monday were without water because of a water main break.

The incident happened at Wilcrest near Meadowglen. The City's Department of Public Works worked to fix the water main all day.

The water main break forced the city to cut off water to some buildings and residents in the area in order to repair the problem.

Repairs were completed by 4 p.m and water was restored to the nearby customers.
