There is a water main break in Danbury on Oak Ridge Avenue, just off Lake Avenue. Mayor Mark Boughton says the repair is expected to take four to six hours. The break was reported around 8am.
Crews are evaluating the break and have begun shutting water off to the affected area so that a repair may be made.
Once the break has been repaired and water service is restored, the city will flush hydrants in the area to alleviate any discolored water.
Customers without water or with low water pressure will include Oak Ridge Avenue, Ridge Road, Concord Road, Green Avenue, Lexington Avenue and Claremont Avenue. Customers in surrounding areas such as along Lake Avenue and Lake Avenue Extension may experience discolored water during the repair work.
