Water main breaks in South Norwalk

Crews are out in Norwalk trying to fix a water main break.

It happened on Meadow Street around 6:30 a.m.

Officials from the city's water department say they hope to have water restored by late this afternoon.

They say that particular main will need to be replaced since it was originally installed in 1926 and has had at least five breaks in recent years.
