UPDATE

Crews repair leak


As of 5 a.m. Saturday, the water leak that left the city of Bridgeport without water for a second consecutive day, has been fixed and water is “heading back to town.”

According to Community Relations Manager Amber Fogelman, it will take several hours to fill the water lines and water towers.

Residents are asked to conserve water. It is OK to shower and bathe, but residents are asked to refrain from doing laundry, running the dishwasher or any other activity that uses larges volumes of water until water gets through the lines and begins filling the tower.

A boil water notice is in effect. The city released a statement saying, “To ensure destruction of all harmful bacteria and other microbes, water for drinking, cooking and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.”
