The major water main break at Niagara Falls Boulevard and 47th Street has been repaired, Niagara Falls Mayor Paul A. Dyster reported.
However, Dyster said there's more work to be done in connection with the break, which occurred Dec. 15. Excavation is to begin at 7:30 a.m. Thursday to repair a valve at the nearby Packard Court housing project, and Dyster said Niagara Falls Water Board officials told him that by early afternoon, it will be known how long that repair will take.
Dyster said water pressure may drop during the valve repair. Once that work is done, the water near the break must pass Health Department tests.
"We're getting closer to getting the system back in full operation," Dyster said.
