Residents of Rycroft will likely be without water until supper time tonight. For the second time this week, a water main near the Public Works Shop has broken.
When it happened Monday, crews were able to fix it within a couple of hours, but Municipal Clerk Rachelle Piscopo says the damage to this section is much worse. The pipe is cracked with a hole, so the Village and Aquatera are replacing a 20 foot piece.
Parents of children at Rycroft School are being called and can give permission for their children to walk home if they’re within a close distance. Either that or they can pick them up or let them be bussed home at the end of the day.
