Local crews are working to replace a 25-foot section of corroded pipe after a water main break left more than 230 homes without water over the weekend.

On Saturday, August 3, a one-foot waterline that runs under Crestview Drive ruptured. Water was restored that night.

The town’s Department of Public Works said the waterline ruptured as a result of corrosion.

This week, local crews are working to replace a 25-foot section of corroded pipe and repair the section of the road that was damaged by the burst.

A smaller water main break also left 15 homes on Lisa Court without water on Tuesday.

Crews will replace a water valve on tomorrow (Thursday). Crestview Drive will be limited to one lane near Mistyvale Street, according to the Town of Herndon.
