Tewksbury public works crews are on scene attempting to restore service. Water service to the area, which includes North Street, Catamount Road and Ames Hill Drive, is expected to be impacted for several hours.
Earlier in the morning, around 5:30 a.m., a major water main break was reported on Oakland Avenue near Railroad Street in Methuen, with over 100 homes left without water.
A traffic detour is in place on Oakland Avenue between Railroad and Craven streets. Work crews are on scene and residents and motorists are urged to avoid the area if at all possible.
