Albany Water Dept. Fixing Second Water Main Break on Same Street

The Albany Water Department is fixing its second water main break this week on the same street.

Water Commissioner Joe Coffey tells NewsChannel 13 Wednesday’s break was about a block away from Monday’s– and it is a larger water main.

The 16-inch main is a transmission line bringing water to other parts of the city.

It took crews some time to stop the water flow after a 57-year-old valve did not work.

Coffey tells NewsChannel 13, fixing the main and the roadwork will take a few days to complete.
