The Meriden Water Company has shut off water service in the area of East Main and Bee streets after a main break Wednesday afternoon.
The water main broke around 1 p.m. and officials said repairs would probably take a few hours.
No roads have been closed because of the water main break and traffic is flowing in the area. Two officers are conducting traffic in the area.
Only customers in the immediate area will be without water, Meriden Water Company officials said.
Crews told Eyewitness News that they do not know what caused the break.
