Thousands of homes are without water in Newcastle's western suburbs following a burst water main at Wallsend.
A third party carrying out work near the Bunnings on Minmi Road this morning hit Hunter Water's main supply to Fletcher, Maryland and Minmi.
Hunter Water crews are desperately trying to fix the problem.
A spokesperson says it's unclear how long it'll take before the water is back.
