- Around 1:30 p.m. on Thursday, the city received a call about a water main break on Shrewsbury Street, near Mulberry Street. Department of Public Works & Parks crews are now on the scene making repairs, which are expected to take roughly six to eight hours. One lane of Shrewsbury Street is closed, and drivers are advised to seek an alternate route.
It does not appear any homes or businesses in the area lost water service, though some rusty water may appear. If you have rusty water, flush it out by running the water - preferably the bathtub or an outdoor faucet - for a few minutes until the water runs clear. - Thu 09/11/2014 03:13 PM
