Title: Update on Water Main Break
France Street and Father Conlin Place
We currently have repaired the water main break on France Street and Father Conlin Place. First District Water Department Distribution Operators are flushing and reactivating the repaired water main. This reactivation can take up to two days. Customers in this area along with the areas of Silvermine Avenue and New Canaan Avenue may experience discolored or dirty water. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause. This discoloration is caused by the disturbance of naturally occurring minerals (iron and manganese) that have settled in the water mains. The water does not pose a health risk. However, when discoloration occurs, we advise customers to store tap water in the refrigerator for drinking and cooking until the water clears up. Customers should also check the condition of the water prior to washing clothes or dishes.
