NEWINGTON — Crews from the Metropolitan District Commission responded to a water main break in Newington early Saturday morning.

MDC says the break was in a 12 inch water main that was installed back in 1961. They shut the main down around 2:00 a.m. and finished repairs around 11:40 a.m. with all water service restored.

They say that road restoration is underway, but there’s no estimated time that will be finished.

Several businesses/commercial properties from Louis Street to 235 Pascone Place were affected by the shutdown.

Crews expect the repairs to be completed by 8:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. Saturday morning.
