Residents in the block of 2nd Street Southwest in Portage la Prairie are without water today. Public Works Manager Brian Taylor explains it's due to a problem that arose in the Midtown Motor Inn.

"The city's just trying to replace the water meter in the hotel," says Taylor. "And they were exercising the valve that needed to be closed and it broke. So, we have to dig down to it and change it out."

Taylor says everything should be back to normal by the end of the day.
