Halifax Water says service should be back to normal for residents in a part of Halifax's south end that flooded Saturday evening following a water main break around Young Avenue. 

James Campbell, spokesperson for Halifax Water, estimates 100 homes were affected. 

"They were able to zone off a pretty small area and they got it repaired around 5 a.m.," he said. "Some people will have some discoloured water and maybe some low pressure for a while but service is back to more or less normal." 

Campbell says it's not unusual to have water main breaks this time of year. 

He says snow on the streets makes it challenging for crews to find the valves that allow them to isolate the affected section. 

Saturday evening around 7 p.m. residents in the area reported seeing water pouring out of storm drains on Young Avenue between Atlantic Street and Inglis Street.
