RENO, Nev. (KOLO)-- FRIDAY MORNING UPDATE: Truckee Meadows Water Authority says the leak has been repaired and homes have water back.

ORIGINAL STORY: 20 to 22 homes are without water on the Bismarck Drive area of southeast Reno due to a water leak, the Truckee Meadows Water Authority reports.

Storm drains are handling the leak and the water has not gotten into any homes.

The source of the leak has not been confirmed.

“There’s some kind of water leak there,” Olson said. “We don’t know the extent of it.”

No one is without water right now, she said, although some may have less water pressure.

This is the time of year when pipes break after warming up after the cold, Olson said.
