Brookfield water main breaks

The City of Brookfield is dealing with two water main breaks this morning.  According to the Department of Public Works, about 6 a.m. a water main broke at Brookfield Road and Hoffman Avenue.  Crews have isolated the break but traffic is being detoured around the break.  South bound traffic should go east bound on Burleigh, south on Calhoun, west on North Avenue back to Brookfield Road.  North bound traffic should take River Road west  to Barker Road north to Capital Drive. 

The second break occurred around 7:50 a.m.  at Capital Drive and Imperial Drive.  Crews are working to isolate the break now.  DPW says there may be lane closures, but most of the work will done out of the traffic lanes.

The DPW says while water pressure is being restored there may be some discoloration to the water.
