There have been plenty of local fire hydrant repair work lately in the Village of Housatonic. On Wednesday, Housatonic Water Works had to replace a hydrant on High Street which meant turning off water on many other streets.

According to an email that was sent to WSBS from Housatonic Water Works, repair work will continue on Thursday, Sept. 9 as the company will be replacing a fire hydrant near 208 Highland Street.

Who will be affected by this hydrant replacement?

Water will be turned off in the mainline which supplies Highland Street and directly affecting South, Oak, Forrest, and Main Streets as well as Van Deusenville Road. In addition, other areas of town may be affected by roily water as service is restored.
