ROTTERDAM - A broken water main on Princetown Road in Rotterdam had businesses closing early Friday and residents without running water.
He had to close his doors at 3 p.m., which will mean a huge hit in business.
“You lose the busiest day of the week in the pizza business,” said Paul Corradi, the owner of Lucia’s Two Go. “You’re going to affect your customers, you’re going to let your costumers down. I had catering jobs I had to turn down.”
Many want to see changes made to the aging infrastructure to the town. Town Supervisor Steven Tommasone said they are currently in the process of gaining grant money from the state.
“Our goal is to replace this line,” explained Tommasone. “To replace it from our water plant on Rice Road through the corners is a big spend. It’ll be a major project.”
