RICHMOND, Va. — Officials said water has been restored to most neighborhoods near Huguenot Bridge following a water main break that caused a widespread outage in parts of Richmond Sunday.

The break happened near the Huguenot Bridge and impacted water pressure to neighborhoods around it, including the Stratford Hills area of South Richmond and the West End near the University of Richmond.

As of 3:30 p.m., officials said the water, which is safe to drink, was back on in most neighborhoods near Huguenot Bridge.

“In the area impacted by the water main break this morning, we’ll be flushing the lines through fire hydrants, so don’t be alarmed if you see hydrants pouring water,” officials also said.
