The Metropolitan District Commission confirms to News 8 that all service was restored at 9:17 a.m., after a 6 inch water main broke around 4 a.m., in the area of 15 Crosshill Road. That road was expected to be shut down for 5 to 7 hours as crews made repairs.

There were 17 homes on Crosshill Road between Boswell Road and Greenacres Avenue that were affected by the shutdown.
The MDC says that “customers may experience a brief period of discoloration or aeration in the water. If this does happen, customers are advised to run the water in the tub until it runs clear.”
The MDC says the main was installed in 1940.
