Update on broken water main

Just got off the phone with the CWS Supervisor for our area and here’s the latest info on the water main break. It’s taken longer than anticipated to repair due to complicating factors. The line broke in Zemosa Acres on Chadbourne between Kendale and Chelwood. Roots from a very large tree have grown around the pipe where it broke and they’ve had difficulty getting the roots out of the way to get the broken pipe out and replace it with new pipe. In addition, apparently concrete was poured near or around the break that further complicated the replacement. At this point, they’ve got the old pipe extracted and are in the process of getting the new pipe in place to complete the repair. No estimated time for completion has been provided, but if I get an update before the water is restored, I’ll post any new information at that time.
