NEW: Worcester Water Expected Back on by 8AM

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

 

Crews have repaired the broken water main line on the west side of the city, and water is expected to be turned back on by 8 a.m. Tuesday, officials said.

The 30-inch main at Chandler and May Streets broke on Monday afternoon causing flooding at the Worcester State University campus and prompting the city to shut off water throughout all of Worcester in order to perfrom the necessary repairs.

Once the repair is completed and water is restored, as a precaution, residents are advised to boil their water prior to using it for drinking, cooking, making baby formula, making ice cubes, brushing teeth or for their pets to drink. The water is not contaminated, but due to loss of system pressure, officials said it is wise to be cautious and boil water until further notice.

Once the system pressure is restored samples will be collected throughout the city to assure it is safe to drink. Sampling may take two to four days to complete.
