The water main on Averill Street near the Route 1 intersection broke early this morning.  The repair crew is on the way but it will take several hours before water service is restored.  It is severe break and several hundred thousand gallons were lost.  Many customers may have discolored water due to the high flows cause by the main failure.  Water is off to Averill Street and Boston Street (363 to 387).

The repair crew is on the way and Digsafe has been called.  Repair work will begin once the other underground utilities are marked.  Water service should be restored by mid-morning.

If your water is discolored run the cold water until it clears before using any hot water.
