A major water main has failed on Bay Boulevard near Eads. Customers in the area may suffer water loss until the break is fixed. No estimate yet on how long it’ll take.
Newport Public Works Director Tim Gross says water loss seems to be limited to an apartment complex at Bay and Eads, The Maritime Museum and Smugglers Cove Apartments. Mr. Gross says once they get a bunch of vehicles towed out of the way, they can get access to the line which they predict they can fix in two to three hours.
In the meantime avoid traveling on Bay Boulevard at Eads.
