UPDATED: Water Main Break in the Area of New York Avenue

UPDATE: The main has been repaired and full service restored to the affected area.

Residents in the neighborhood of New York Avenue may be experiencing water service disruption or discoloration due to a main break near the intersection of New York Avenue and Buccleuch Place.

Repairs are underway and will continue throughout the morning, followed by hydrant flushing in the affected area.

Water discoloration is caused by the dislodging of iron deposits in water mains.

Water remains safe for use, but residents are advised to avoid using hot water or doing laundry until discoloration disappears, as iron deposits can sometimes build up in hot water heaters and possibly stain laundry.
