Water main break creates headache
NEW HAVEN — Construction crews from the South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority are working to repair an eight inch water main at the intersection of Level Street and Brookside Avenue.
The cause of the break is under investigation, and drivers should avoid traveling that area while the crews are working, the authority said.
Customers who live on Level, Wayfarer, Lodge and Brookside are affected by the repair work, the authority said. The break was reported at 6:30 a.m. and repair work was delayed because a school bus became stuck in the water and had to be towed, the authority said. There were no children on the bus at the time.
Customers will be without water while crews repair the damage. The authority has made bottled water available to customers in the affected area while the repair work is ongoing. Some customers in the surrounding area may experience discolored water.
