NEW: Worcester Shuts Off Water for Entire City After Water Main Break

Monday, November 12, 2012

 

City officials have shut off the water supply to all of Worcester after a 30-inch water line near Chandler and May Streets failed this afternoon.

Officials reported that the break in the 30-inch line, directly off of a 40-inch water main line, is significant.

The Department of Public Works and Parks has assessed all options for repair. The size of the line and the required repair will require the City to shut the water gates off that feed the whole City at the water treatment facility for Monday evening and most of the early morning hours on Tuesday as well.

All residents and businesses will likely experience low or no potable water flow at their faucets and taps during this period of repair. Once repaired, DPW will flush main water lines where required. Residents and business can expect discolored water once water gates at the plant are reopened and water pressure and water flow are restored.

Residents and businesses should leave their faucets and taps on and observe water until it runs clear. Do not leave faucets and taps on unattended. Discolored water can stain laundry if done during this shut down and restoration period.

Earlier in the day, the ruptured main caused flooding at the Worcester State University campus, prompting the school to close and cancel classes for Tuesday.

Check back for updates.
