NORWALK, Conn. -- A large water main burst in South Norwalk late Tuesday morning, leaving a few customers without water and other city residents with discolored water.

Water technical specialist Rocco Cundari at South Norwalk Electric and Water said he believed the break was reported at 11:30 a.m. Crews were on the scene Tuesday afternoon and repairs were underway. “We should have it repaired this afternoon or evening," Cundari said.

Customers between 3 and 15 Meadow St. are without water until repairs are made, according to the company's website. Other customers may experience temporary loss of water service, low pressure and/or discolored water, SNEW said.

If customers see discolored water coming out of their pipes, Cundari recommends that customers go to the highest point where there is a sink or bathtub in the building and run the water.

The company advises customers to wait until the water is clear before using the hot water, washing machine or dishwasher.
