Water has been shut off for some Stratford residents this afternoon, while a water leak is fixed at the site of the new subdivision off Pembroke Road.

The fire brigade are in attendance, as they were called out to attend to a reported gas leak at the site.

When they arrived there, water was flooding out from a burst pipe, and contractors are now working to fix both the original gas leak and the subsequent water leak.

Water was flowing freely down the road after a pipe was hit.
