UPDATE: Water Main break in Rotterdam

ROTTERDAM, NY (NEWS10) – News10 was told the culprit for the water main break on Sunrise Boulevard was old infrastructure.

There is currently only one house without water and crews will be out all night until about midnight to try to fix this issue.

The pipe that broke is the second largest in Town.

The road buckled due to the pressure of the break. Gas and electric companies will begin digging when they arrive to the scene because they don’t want to break the lines in the process.

There will most likely be no boil water advisory. With the type of pipe involved they believe they will be able to avoid needing one.

Residents should conserve their water until tomorrow morning.

Motorists should avoid Sunrise Drive for the next few hours.
