Water main break repaired in Orangetown

Posted: Updated:

Some business owners in Orangetown will now have to boil their tap water for the rest of this week because of yesterday's water main break.

Repairs crews worked all through last night at the intersection of Route 303 and Orangeburg Road.

Representatives for the United Water company say the pipeline is fixed.

Contractors working yesterday afternoon at a Chase Bank accidentally hit their water main.

However, there are still a handful of nearby businesses, no homes though, that must still boil their tap water through the end of this week.
