Residents, businesses flooded after water main break

A number of residents and businesses are bailing out up to four feet of water from their basements after a water main break on Court

CARROLL GARDENS - A number of residents and businesses are bailing out up to four feet of water from their basements after a water main break on Court Street in Carroll Gardens.

According to the city's Department of Environmental Protection, National Grid crews struck a water main while trying to fix a gas main, forcing both to be shut off.

Con Edison was also called out because of concerns about electrical service with the rising water.

Court Street was reopened after crews repaired the road and sidewalks that had sunk in due to the gushing water.
