Water main break in Fredericton leads to discoloured water

Some Fredericton residents were dealing with discoloured water on Sunday.

This after a large water main break on Smythe Street near Parkside Drive.

In an statement Sunday evening, city officials said the break was under control and being repaired.

However, discoloured water was being experienced on the south side hill area, as well as Skyline Acres.

"The water remains safe and residents experiencing discoloured water should run their taps to clear," the statement said.

Residents who continue to experience discolouration on Monday afternoon are asked to contact Service Fredericton at 506-460-2020 or service@fredericton.ca.
