Major Wyoming street closed due to water main break

WYOMING, Mich. - Clyde Park was closed north of 28th Street due to a major water main break Thursday.

Wyoming Assistant City Manager Megan Sall says crews have shut down the water main and have started excavation in the area.   It's unclear how long the street will be closed for repairs.

Water was shut off in three areas Thursday:

  • The north side of 28th Street from Jenkins to Clyde Park Avenue
  • All of Tennyson Drive
  • Clyde Park from Tennyson south to Colrain Street

Sall says that a boil water advisory will be in effect for those areas.  She says there could be residual water in the lines and that even when service is restored, people in the affected areas should boil their water until further notice.

Officials say the pipe that broke was from the 1960s.  Crews remained in the area as of 9:50 p.m. Thursday.

    The same thing happened there not too long ago. Wonder if that was a bad repair or simply another location that was due to break
