GROTON -- Residents in West Groton regained water service early Monday morning after repair crews worked through the night to repair a water main that had burst, affecting about 50 homes.

According to West Groton Water Supply District General Manager Gordon Newell, the 8-inch water main on Kemp Street ruptured at about 8:30 p.m. Sunday, causing many homes on the Bixby Hill Road and Pepperell Road neighborhoods to experience a drop in water pressure.

The repair crew shut off the water main at about 9:15 p.m. This cut down water supply to about 12 homes, but most of the area homes continued to receive water throughout the construction, Newell said.

The repair completed at about 3 a.m. Monday and normal water distribution resumed.
