Several families in a Lincoln neighborhood had their basements flooded Wednesday due to a water main break.

The break in the Belmont neighborhood of north Lincoln occurred at about 4 a.m. The Lincoln Water System said water main breaks are common when temperatures are low.

Homeowners said heir homes have flooded three times in the last two-and-a-half years. Rebecca Lile said she and her boyfriend came home to find their basement flooded with water, "nasty, dirty sewer everywhere."
