“Crews are conducting emergency repairs on a 12” water main on Madison between 1st & 3rd Streets, as well as a 16″ main on 2nd between Monroe & Jefferson. Residents and businesses in that vicinity may experience a loss in water pressure and/or service while work is underway,” Suez wrote on their website around 6:40 a.m.
“We will provide updates on the status of the repairs, as our crews work as quickly as possible to restore service.”
Residents impacted by the emergency repairs can get water at 123 Madison St., while any vehicles that were towed were relocated to 13th and Adams Streets without any charge to the car owners, Suez also said.
Yesterday, a six-inch water main break on 1st and Jefferson Streets let to streets in the surrounding area being closed for about 13 hours until emergency repairs were completed.
This break, which exposed a connector pipe from 1890, did not disrupt any water service, according to Suez.
