JOLIET — Joliet utility crews worked to repair a water main break Wednesday near the intersection of Theodore Street and South River Road.

Both Joliet and Shorewood have water lines in the area, but Joliet officials confirmed the break was theirs, Joliet Public Utilities Administrator Allison Swisher said.

"Our crews are currently out there working on it," Swisher said Wednesday afternoon.

It was not immediately clear when or why the break occurred, or how many area residents the break affected.
