According to the city's announcement, all businesses and residential water service customers on North Main Street from Weetamoe Street north to Herman Street will be impacted.

The Route 79 southbound on ramp will also need to remain closed during repairs.

As many businesses and property owners as possible are being notified about the 10 p.m. shutdown by the city's Department of Community Utilities, the release stated.

Water service is expected to be restored by the early morning, the city noted in its announcement — but officials did not say what time Thursday residents could expect to have water again.

Residents with additional questions or concerns can call the Water Department Emergency phone number at 508-324-2720.
