HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Frigid temperatures are causing water main breaks in Connecticut communities.
The Metropolitan District said it’s expected to take up to 8 hours to repair. The drinking water and sewage service agency says the water main dates to 1948.
In the town of Plymouth, officials say some residents in the Terryville section are without water because of a main break at around 6 a.m. Saturday. That break was affecting about 20 customers as of noon Saturday. It took place on Route 6 near Makara Street.
Repairs are also underway in Danielson on Reynolds Street, and about 25 customers are affected in that break.
Connecticut Water says it is working to locate the break and it’s still not clear how many households it has affected. The drinking water provider says it expected to have water service restored by the end of the day.
