Norfolk crews fix water main break

Emergency crews are on the scene of a water main break in Jackson Heights, Queens.

Although pressure has begun to be restored to some areas, there are 38 confirmed breaks that have not yet been assigned to city crews or contractor crews, but will be assigned later today or tomorrow.

Norfolk crews have repaired a water main break in the 700 block of Graydon Avenue. The remainder of the City of Jackson continues to be under a boil water advisory, including customers in the following mailing zip codes: 39201, 39202, 39203, 39204, 39206, 39209, 39212, 39213, and 39216.

The water main break also caused subway issues for a time on the E, F, M and R lines.

We were able to add an additional contractor crew yesterday and now have three city crews and eight contractor crews working to fix these breaks. These breaks will be assigned for completion soon.

The crews will continue to work twelve-hour shifts until pressure has been fully restored to the system.

The city doing everything possible to restore system pressure in advance of the arrival of that cold front.
