According to the T&G a main water pipe break causes some problems in the city. A few minutes before this writing, we just received a reverse 911 from the schools stating that schools will be delayed 2 hours.
There was an emergency notice issued by the city on the evening of November 12, 2012:
CITY OF WORCESTER informed us that Worcester water has been shut off in areas of the city due to a main water break near Worcester State University. Residence of Worcester may experience no water, or low water pressure, or rusty water until crews repair the main, which may be returned tomorrow morning.
Once it is repaired crews will flush out the system you are therefor advised to boil you water for 20 minutes within the next 24 hour period after such repair.
Worcester public schools called residence this evening to inform them of a 2 hour delay opening schools on Tuesday November 13, 2012.
