MONTPELIER – A boil-water notice has been lifted for Nelson and Marvin streets in the Capital City.

It followed a water-main break at the intersection of Ridge and Nelson streets which inundated Main Street downtown with water that froze in place and disrupted traffic.

The city reported another water main break on Sunday, resulting in another boil-water notice for two homes in the area, expected to be lifted Tuesday afternoon after tests show the water is safe to drink.

It brings to three the number of water main breaks in the city in the past week, after the first at Elm and State streets during rush hour on Tuesday, disrupting traffic in both directions on Route 12 and reducing water service to parts of the city.
