Ansonia, Conn. (WTNH) -- Twelve customers in Ansonia are without water service due to a water main break.
South Central Connecticut Regional Water Authority crews responded to a water main break on Church Street in Ansonia and have isolated the pipe that was broken.
Tom Chaplik, Vice President Water Quality & Outreach, states the break will take several hours to repair.
Many customers including Griffin Hospital will experience discolored water as a result of the initial drop in water pressure in the water mains.
Customers are advised to run the water for a few minutes to clear the discoloration. If the color does not return to normal after running the water in their home, you should call 203-562-4020.
Customers should use caution when washing clothes, especially light colored ones. Check the condition of the water to prevent staining.
