Water covered Deforest Road SE in Niles Sunday morning and several homes were  without water. 

A water line break occurred around 7:30 a.m. and the old pipe that burst needs replaced before water can be restored.

The break happened on Deforest Road between Evergreen and Boston Avenues. Only a small portion of one lane on Deforest Road is blocked off and surrounded with cones as the pipe gets replaced. Traffic can still drive on the road.

Those effected can expect water restored to their homes between 1-2 p.m.

The City of Niles has issued a boil alert for Deforest Road until further notice.
