Water main break, discolored water in Hamden remedied

News

HAMDEN, Conn. (WTNH) — Some residents in Hamden reported that discolored water came out of their faucets.

The Regional Water Authority said the issue was caused by a water main break on Armory Street on Friday night.

“Discolored water comes from naturally occurring minerals in the pipes that are stirred up following activity that has disturbed the direction or rate of flow in the water main,” a Regional Water Authority spokesperson said.

Crews worked overnight to fix the issue.

Saturday morning, RWA released a statement saying, “RWA crews were flushing late yesterday evening and reports indicate that the discoloration has cleared. We are advising that any customers continuing to experience discolored water flush their internal plumbing by running a cold water tap for five to ten minutes. We will also have crews in the field today available to conduct additional flushing should it be needed.”
