Main break causes homes to lose water in Holyoke

Posted: Updated:
HOLYOKE, MA (WSHM) -

Twenty to 30 homes were without water for about six hours on Saturday after a water main break.

Holyoke Water Works officials told CBS 3 that they were first made aware of the issue on River Terrace around 5 a.m.

They said they had to replace approximately 20 feet of a 12-inch water main.

Water was shut off to that area by 7 a.m.

While it was back by the early afternoon, crews remained on scene until early in the evening.
