Some residents of Sturges Highway in Fairfield, as well as those living on Dawn Drive and Sturges Hollow in Westport, have no public water service this afternoon because of a water main break in front of 886 Sturges Highway.
Aquarion Co. spokesman Lorraine Bukowski said about 25 properties are affected by the break. She said water was shut off at 3:30 p.m. Thursday and is expected to take four to six hours for repairs to be completed.
"We don't have a cause yet," Bukowski said, "but given what's been going on this week, the weather could be the cause."
