Crews are responding to a sewer main break in Middletown Friday night.
Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection officials confirmed they were responding to assist the city with the break. The 24-inch sewer line collects sewage from South Main Street south of Pameacha Avenue and discharges into Sumner Brook, which flows into the Connecticut River.
Residents should avoid contact with the water in Sumner Brook and the Connecticut River in the area.
The city is working with a contractor to repair the pipe and control the sewage flow, DEEP said.
