Imagine having no water for drinking, cooking or bathing? It's a nightmare that residents of Watertown had to experience first hand after a water main break. 7 News reported that there was a water main break coming from a water treatment plant which initially caused very low water pressure then no water at all.

Residents were asked to boil and then conserve water in a press release to the public.
