According to Northern Kentucky Water District spokesperson, Amy Kramer, they are still investigating the cause. 

"We've received probably 30 calls so far from Fort Thomas residents about water outages and we are still investigating the cause," she said. "At this point, a water main break hasn't been identified and we aren't sure how many customers are affected."

The NKWD currently does not have an estimated time for service to be restored. 

Calls began coming in at 10:45 a.m. this morning and at around 11:15 some customers were reporting to FTM that their service was back on. 

FTM has a contact into the NKWD and will update this story with more information as it becomes available.

UPDATE (12:13 p.m.)
Per Amy Kramer of NKWD, water pressure has been restored. They have not yet figured a cause to the outage.
