DANBURY, CT — A boil water advisory was issued Tuesday, April 24 for Danbury residents in the area of Hayestown and Tamarack Ave. after a massive water main break that closed Danbury Hospital, Hayestown and Broadview Middle Schools. The City of Danbury is asking residents to voluntarily reduce water usage over the next 48 hours as crews work to repair the problem, according to the city’s website.

The water main break has impacted water customers east of Main Street, East of North Street up to Route 84 and South to South Street. The city’s boil water advisory remains in effect.

Mayor Mark Boughton tweeted Tuesday that handmade parts were flown in from Buffalo and that the Public Works Department is taking care of the problem.

The Danbury War Memorial Facilities are available for residents that have been impacted by the water main break. Restrooms, showers, and water is available there.

Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton Recovering at Home After Collapse

Screen Shot 2018-03-16 at 6.17.14 PMDANBURY, CT — Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton’s campaign manager said the Republican gubernatorial candidate is recovering at home after a scary scene at a campaign stop in Avon. State Rep. Prasad Srinivasan, another candidate running for governor, is one of three doctors who came to Mayor Mark’s rescue, performing CPR chest compressions on him, according to WFSB.

Team Boughton sent out the following email Friday:

UConn Health Center officials announced that Mayor Mark Boughton was released from UConn Health this afternoon. 

“Last evening Danbury Mayor Mark Boughton was brought to UConn Health where, according to his doctors, he was treated for dehydration. He was released a short time ago.  Before he left,  Mr. Boughton asked me to extend his thanks to the people of UConn Health for their care. He said, and I quote “we are lucky to have a place like this.” We thank Mr. Boughton for his comments and UConn Health will have no further updates on this matter.”

 
Thank you for your continued support.
 
– Team Boughton

Doctors said the collapse was due to dehydration and was unrelated to his medical issues stemming from a benign brain tumor he had removed last year.
