The water is back on for about 100 homes and businesses in downtown Lafayette after a water main break late last night left them dry all morning long.

The break occurred at the intersection of Mount Diablo Boulevard and Village Center.

The water flooded one home's garage. East Bay MUD officials shut down the main and have been on the scene all morning making repairs. While the water is back on to all affected customers, officials say a new permanent water line will likely not be in place until late tonight.
