Workers are continuing to patch the water main break that flooded Lincoln Square on Monday, and the city has closed off all southbound lanes on Broadway between 65th and 61st Street. That section could remain closed for three to five days, according to the 20th precinct.
In addition, 62nd Street is closed between Broadway and Columbus Avenue.
Water may be murky for days in some areas, officials said.
“DEP repaired a 12-inch water main on Broadway & West 60th. DEP is repairing a 20-inch & 36-inch in the West 60s,” according to Assembly Member Linda Rosenthal. “Water pressure & color may fluctuate during repairs. Its unclear when the work will be finished.”
The DEP says that residents with brown water should let it run for a while until it’s “clear and cold.” It’s safe to drink, they say.
