Fall River Announces Emergency Water Service Shutdown
FALL RIVER — Some North Main Street residents in Fall River will not be able to use their tap water, after the city announced an emergency water service shutdown on Aug. 31 due to a water leak.
The shutdown will be to repair the water leak, discovered on Wednesday at the Route 79 South on ramp of North Main Street in Fall River.
It will take place starting at 10 p.m. on Aug. 31 and last until the early morning on Thursday, Sept. 1.
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.
