Water Main Break Closes Malcolm Road

Vienna crews repairing break Saturday, shutting down Malcolm Road between Nutley Street and Lawyers Road.

Malcolm Road was closed to traffic Saturday after a water main break near Lawyers Road.

As of 3:04 p.m., town crews were on the scene to repair the break, according to a Town of Vienna alert.

Traffic was being turned away on Malcolm Road between Nutley Street and Lawyers Road while crews made the repair.

Several homes in the area are also without water service until the break is fixed.

Not only was Malcolm closed, but Cottage and a couple other streets as well, making driving around Vienna a real challenge yesterday. Today, the water coming from my tap smells like rotten eggs. I have no idea if it is a result of all the water main breaks or something else. I live off Lawyers about half a mile north of the break on Malcolm yesterday. Anyone else in this area getting stinky water today?

Thanks for keeping us posted, Amelie -- information from the town only specified the Malcolm Road closure. Does your water still smell strange?

It got a little better towards evening -- I had to rewash some of my clothes earlier because even after the dryer they smelled like sulpher. Even my refrigerator's water filter, which usually does a good job, could not get rid of the odor earlier today.
