    A water main break forced police to close part of Thomaston Avenue in Waterbury on Thursday.

    Part of Waterbury Road in Thomaston has been washed out because of a large water main break this morning and drivers are asked to avoid using Waterbury Roa and Thomaston Avenue near the Thomaston-Waterbury town line until repairs are done.

    According to the Waterbury Bureau of Water, there was a water main break early this morning on the 42-inch high-service transmission main.

    The break has been closed and repair work has started.

    Waterbury residents who normally receive water from this main are getting water from the other high-service transmission line.

    Officials warn that there might be some discoloration in the water because water flow has increased.
    Water levels in some of the city’s water tanks were lower than normal because of the break.

    Until the repair is completed, customers are asked to limit unnecessary water usage.
