EAST STROUDSBURG, MONROE COUNTY (WBRE/WYOU) — A water main break is impacting residents in one section of East Stroudsburg Thursday.
According to the East Stroudsburg Department of Public Works (DPW), the main break is at the intersection of Brodhead Avenue and Centre Street, and it’s a 10-inch break.
A neighbor told Eyewitness News he noticed around 5:00 p.m. that he had dirty water and then saw water gushing from the street where the main broke.
East Stroudsburg DPW is on scene with heavy machinery ripping up the road in order to fix the main. They say it should be fixed in around five hours if they don’t run into any issues.
