A water main break that closed a section of Shaker Road in East Longmeadow Saturday morning has been repaired.

At approximately 4:20 p.m. crews were wrapping up repairs, and water should return shortly to any businesses or homes that were affected. 

"The water system down on shaker road consists of a 6 " AC main and a 12 " AC main.The break was on the 6 ". Cartamundi (Hasbro) and a few other businesses are affected," noted DPW Superintendent, Bruce Fenney.

"There are currently two breaks on the 6 inch line, within a 100 feet of each other. One has been repaired and starting to excavate and repair second break.
