    Repairs Continue on Broken Water Main in Bristol

    The road remains closed hours after a water main break was discovered in Bristol.

    (Published Friday, Aug. 3, 2018)

    Crews are working to repair a large water main break on Maple Avenue in Bristol and the road will be closed for the rest of the day.

    Bristol Police said Maple Avenue is closed from Burlington Avenue to Sperry Road and a traffic detour has been set up.

    The Bristol Water Department said 10 homes are without water and other customers in the area might see lower than normal water pressure or discolored water.

    Officials said the repairs are more complicated than they expected and the water department is running behind. 

    Once service is restored, officials said customers experiencing discolored water should run an outside faucet or bathtub and avoid washing clothes until the water is clear.
