MONSON, MA (WGGB/WSHM) -- Crews are working to repair a large water main break in Monson.

Monson Police said the break occurred near 90 Palmer Road.  

As a result of the repair work, drivers should expect delays through the area.

Town officials added that when water is restored, it may contain a small amount of air and appear rusty.  Residents are asked to open the cold water faucets and let the water run until it's clear.  Additionally, residents may want to run a wash cycle without clothes to ensure the water is clear.  Otherwise, the clothing might be stained.
