The City of Duluth says Public Works and Utility crews are working to repair three water main breaks Thursday.

The breaks are in the Harbor Highlands neighborhood along Central Entrance, in the Woodland neighborhood, and on Rice's Point.  Water service in the areas is turned off while repairs are made.

The city said crews hope to complete repairs in the Harbor Highlangs and Woodland neighborhoods by late Thursday.  No time of repair for Rice's Point, where businesses are located, was available.

While the exact cause of these three breaks is not yet known, the city said pipes sometimes shift underground when temperatures change.
