West Hartford School Dismissed Early After Water Main Break

A break in an 8-inch water main on Webster Hill Boulevard in West Hartford, near Webster Hill Elementary School, led to school dismissing at noon Tuesday because of it. 

MDC said crews were monitoring the leak, which initially appeared to be small enough to allow a delay in repairs so that Webster Hill School could remain in session today, but crews determined they had to shut down the water main and begin repairs this afternoon.

They said extreme weather is a factor in the occurrence of water main breaks.

The repairs are expected to be complete between 7 p.m. and 8 p.m.
