NEW ROCHELLE, N.Y. – United Water reported that there were three water main breaks in New Rochelle Friday morning.

Customers in New Rochelle and Eastchester may experience low water pressure or discolored water, the water company said.

The breaks were reported at the intersection of Webster and Rose Hill avenues and on Cedar Street in New Rochelle and at the intersection of New Rochelle Avenue and Alta Drive in Eastchester. 

Emergency crews were on the scene water was shut off. Work was expected to continue until the end of the day. 

Con Edison was also on scene as a precautionary measure because of gas lines. Some water went into a couple of homes.

Sorry to contradict United Water, but the water pressure is not restored on Rose Hill Avenue or Norman Road. It is after 7:30 pm and there is water coming out of the faucets, but it is not normal water pressure by any stretch of the imagination. The water is more than a trickle, but just barely. Trust me, my neighbors and I are grateful we have any water at all. United Water should just be honest about the progress of restoring normal pressure to its customers.
