MAIN STREET FLOODED. LARGE PORTION OF CITY WITHOUT WATER DUE TO REPORTED WATER MAIN BREAK. PUMPHOUSE COULDN’T FIND LEAK

WPCNR MAIN STREET JOURNAL. By Contributing CitizeNetReporters. August 7, 2015:

THE WHITE PLAINS DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC SAFETY HAS JUST REPORTED ON FACEBOOK THERE IS A WATERMAIN BREAK IN THE DOWNTOWN.

WPCNR has learned that water is out in a large portion of the city as of 5:30 PM and Main Street is flooding from a manhole in the middle Main Street near the railroad station…which I think is probably creating a severe traffic jam or rerouting. As of 5:45 P.M.City Hall has finally reported on their website the leak is actually on Martin Luther King Jr Boulevard

A caller from the Highlands neighborhood said he is down to a trickle out OF his faucets. He said he called the pumphouse of the DPW to ascertain what the problem was. The pumphouse says there was a watermain break, and they have shut down the system trying to find the leak. This caller also reports the water is gushing up out of the Main Street manhole.
