The water main break on Division Street at Overbrook Lane that took place during the snowstorm late Thursday night has been repaired and the road should be reopened Saturday afternoon, according to workers at the scene. 

The break closed Division Street from Love Lane to First Avenue. 

According to a Kent County Water Authority supervisor, about 15 residences were affected. Water service was restored Friday. The work was made more difficult because of the extreme cold. 

This was the third water main break in recent days affecting KCWA service. According to the supervisor, it's unclear what caused the specific breaks, but he said old pipes are usually the underlying issue.

What a ‘delightful’ experience!!! The saving grace was the politeness and courtesy shown by the KCWA’s first responders. The two gentlemen that came to our door to explain what had happened –to inspect our flooding –and to advise what we should do and then kept us informed as to what action the Authority was taking. During the course of the day I became a ‘sidewalk superintendent’ and was very impressed with the diligence that the entire crew demonstrated in the bitter cold and snow to get the work completed to stop the flooding and restore our water. Thank you KCWA you did a good job! To the two gentlemen –that woke us in the morning thank you for your support and kindness.
