About 150 homes and businesses in East Greenwich were without water Thursday because of a water main break.
The break happened on Middle Road at about 6 p.m. Wednesday.
The Kent County Water Authority said a 5-foot section of pipe had to be replaced.
Crews were doing that Thursday, and then the system will have to be flushed.
The KCWA said water service should be restored by 5 p.m.
