More than 100 apartments, 30 homes and a school are without water while crews repair a water main break in northwest Baltimore.

A Department of Public Works valve truck turned off the water to the broken 16-inch water main in the 4700 block of Greenspring Avenue, so crews could begin the repair Tuesday afternoon.

The road remains closed Wednesday as crews work to repair the main. DPW officials said they delivered bottled Tuesday night to area residents affected by the water main break.

Service hasn't yet been restored.
