Water Main Break Leaves Some Chicopee Residents without Water

imageCHICOPEE, Mass. (wggb) — A water main break on Montgomery Street in Chicopee has left about 49 homes without water for hours.

It happened around 7 am Saturday morning and by last night the 16 inch break was repaired. However another section of the pipe blew around 3 am. The breaks are being blamed on the age of the pipes.

Breaks like these are common in February and March after the frost melts making old pipes more weak. Today’s break should be repaired by early afternoon.
