New Haven

NEW HAVEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Some New Haven residents may have experienced low water pressure or have had discolored water after a vehicle struck a fire hydrant Saturday morning on Fitch Street.

The accident happened around 7:30 a.m. on Fitch Street between Crescent and Dyer Streets, not far from the Southern Connecticut State University campus.

The street was closed in that area for several hours while water company crews made repairs to the hydrant.

The Southern Connecticut State University Police Department says the campus is not affected.

The Regional Water Authority (RWA) says the issue has since been resolved and service should be back to normal. RWA recommends those who have discolored water to wait until it clears before drinking, showering or doing laundry.
