Water Main Break: North Main St

Water Main Break: North Main St

November 21, 2022

There is a water main break in the vicinity of 27 North Main St.  The Water Department is working to restore water service.

Customers may experience discolored water when service is restored.  The discolored water is not a health threat.  However, the discolored water can stain clothing, so it is best to wait for the water to clear before doing any laundry.  Also, it is advisable not to use any hot water as you may draw the discolored water into your hot water tank, which may have to be flushed later.  If you are doing laundry when the water became discolored, rewash the laundry later when the water is clear.  Use a rust stain remover or regular detergent.  Do not use chlorine bleach.  Chlorine can react with iron and can form a permanent stain.

You may contact the Water Department at 860-691-4104 from 8:00 AM to 4:00 PM or Emergency Dispatch at 860-739-3419 after 4:00 PM with any questions.
