    West Main Street in Waterbury is closed between the intersections at Willow and Sperry streets after a vehicle hit a fire hydrant.

    Waterbury officials say that water conditions are getting back to normal after a water main break Tuesday.

    The damage was repaired overnight, according to a spokesperson in the Waterbury Mayor's Office.

    Due to the break, many residents reported that their water was discolored Tuesday but city officials said the water is clearing up. The water main has been flushed out and the water should be safe to drink, according to the Mayor's Office.

    Waterbury Mayor Neil O'Leary tweeted Wednesday afternoon that "with time, the water quality will improve."

    "Customers are encouraged to avoid using washing machines, dishwashers, other water using devices," he tweeted.
