Water Main Break in Somerville Forces Street and Senior Center To Be Closed

By William Tauro

A Water Main break on New Washington Street in Somerville caused the street as well as a City of Somerville senior center, The Ralph and Jenny Center, to be closed on Friday.

Hundreds of people also lost water next door at the Cobblehill Apartment building complex until Somerville DPW crews connected water supplies from local nearby fire hydrants.

A broken pipe leaking sending thousands of gallons of water flowing beneath New Washington Street caused this big Columbus Day Weekend Mess.

DPW crews are working franticly to find the leak to restore water service abd to reopen the road and local buildings as soon as possible.
