HAMDEN, Conn. — The precautionary boil water advisory The Regional Water Authority (RWA) issued earlier this week for several streets in Hamden has been lifted.
Officials said High Rock Rd, Hill St, Laura Rd, W Shepard Ave, Paradise Ave, Heathridge Rd, Norman Rd, Sterling Pl, Laurel View Ter, Dunbar Hill Rd, and Chauncy Rd were the streets possibly affected. Now, they no longer have to boil their water.
Affected customers that did not use their water during the advisory are asked to flush their plumbing by running cold water from a faucet at the highest point in the house for five to 10 minutes.
Earlier on Thursday, the RWA discovered a 16" water main break in the High Rock Service area of Hamden near West Shepard Avenue. The repairs have since been completed and service has been restored.
