Waterworks break on the rue du Federal

Saturday’s power outages had a collateral effect in Sherbrooke: the rupture of a water main on the rue du Fédéral in the Center-Sud neighborhood.

C ome pumps that deliver the water in the pipes stopped functioning during the outage, and when they were handed on, the strong water pressure broke through a pipe and caused a leak of groundwater.

Water was cut off in this area while the City of Sherbrooke did the necessary repairs, the duration of which was estimated at a few hours.

The break occurred in front of a single-family home, near the intersection of rue du Fédéral and rue Acadie.
