Water main break causes 63 Chesterfield homes to lose service for nearly 5 hours

Chesterfield County

CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — A water main break forced dozens of Chesterfield residents to spend their first day of the new year without running water for nearly five hours.

Chesterfield County Utilities Department told 8News Wednesday that the water main break, located on Kingsdale Road near Route 1, shut off water for 63 homes in the area at 10 a.m.

Utility crews worked hours to pump out the water, replace the line and make Kingsdale Road passable again.

One nearby resident described what she woke up to on Wednesday morning.

“I tried the faucets and everything and none of it would come out,” said Robbin Friend. “No water, no little ‘bloop’ or nothing came out.”

It is still unknown what caused the water main break.
