Water Main Break Shuts Down Parts of Cherry Street

A rupture to a two-inch pipe shut down a small portion of Cherry Street on Sunday.

Utility crews in Newark continued to clean up Sunday evening after a water main broke in the city early Sunday morning, a water department spokesman said.

The rupture occurred on a two-inch pipe under Cherry Street south of Central Avenue, in a mostly industrial section of the city, district maintenance supervisor Robert Ellf said.

The leak was shut off at about 5:30 a.m., and crews were working to repair the pipe Sunday afternoon, Ellf said.

A portion of Cherry Street was damaged and was expected to remain closed until about 5 p.m.
