MILFORD, Conn. (WTNH)– The water is back on in Milford after a water main break left more than a dozen residents without water for most of the day Thursday.

The Regional Water Authority tells News 8 that crews were mobilized at about 5:30 a.m. after a 10-inch water main broke on Merwin Avenue around 3:00 a.m.

By 8:30 a.m., crews were able to locate the leak, and notify about 20 people that their water service would be interrupted. The customers affected were between 41 and 73 Merwin Avenue, as well as one customer on Villa Rosa Terrace.

The repairs began at 9 a.m. and Merwin Avenue was closed for almost six hours. The repairs were completed just before 2:45 p.m.

There is minor flooding in the area because water did surface, so icing is a concern due to the cold temperatures. However, crews are sanding.
