Water Main Fixed 

Newport’s water main break has been fixed, but not before more than 600,000 gallons were lost.

The break happened on Main Street around 2:00 A.M Tuesday morning.

Crews worked straight through until 4:00 A.M. this morning to fix it.

Tests are being run to see if the water is now safe to drink.

While town officials wait for the results, they’re advising all residents in the area of the break to boil their water at least for the next few days.
