WATERTOWN — A water main break near Ten Eyck and Holcomb streets in the city has closed a portion of Holcomb Street.

How many people are affected and what caused the break were not immediately available.

The area that broke appears to be some of the piping slated to be replaced using part of the city’s American Rescue Plan Act funds.

The plans include replacing about 1,370 feet of 8-inch cement lined, cast-iron pipe on Holcomb, Mullin and Ten Eyck and Chestnut streets to Barben Avenue.

The entire project has been billed as the city’s largest investment ever in water main work, with up to 20,102 feet, or 3.8 miles of new steel pipe to be installed. The nine water main projects vary in size and cost, from $200,000 to $1.4 million.
