The Metropolitan District Commission (MDC) says that crews responded to a 12 inch water main break just before 6 a.m. at 150 Tower Avenue.
Around 10:15, crews shut down three water mains in order to make repairs.
The Director of Communications and Marketing of Hartford Public School says that the Journalism and Media Academy and Culinary Arts Academy will be closed for the day to protect the safety of students. 77 properties were impacted by the break.
Officials say repairs were completed and service was restored around 5:25 p.m.
