A water main break Thanksgiving Monday is causing headaches for people living on the street where it happened in Regina.

Residents on the 2300 block of Parliament Avenue have been without water for hours.

The city is providing water via an emergency water tank, and residents are lining up to fill buckets and containers.

Jason Kotyk, who is expecting 16 people for Thanksgiving supper Monday night, said he is managing.

"I had enough to make coffee this morning," he said. "And I just bought some water at Safeway so, yeah, we'll be OK."

Kotyk said he is hoping, however, the water is back on by the time his guests arrive.
