Hartford residents without water after main break


Crews are investigating a water main break in a historic neighborhood of Hartford, which is an area that has seen water main breaks before.

The break occurred on Capitol Avenue near Hudson Street around 2 p.m.

There are several customers in the area without water. The break is expected to be repaired and water service returned between 8:30 and 10:30 p.m.

Some of the infrastructure in the neighborhood is more than 80 years old along with cold temperatures can cause the pipes to break.

There was a major water main breaks in the area in 2008 and 2007.

Because the break is close to the curve, no roads in the area have been shut down.
