Water main break in Riverdale leaves some 40 homes without water

Crews are working Thursday to fix a water main break in Riverdale that left some 40 homes without water.

The break happened on Mosholu Avenue between 255th and 256th streets Wednesday night, which caused the road to be shut down. The pressure from the water main break actually caused part of the roadway to lift up over the sidewalk.

Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) crews hope to have water back some time Thursday. City officials are not yet sure what caused the break.
