Central Hampshire Public Service District officials found the pressurized pump house at the Romney Middle School to be the cause of the water shortage.
“The foundation of the pump house is filled with water. They have shut off the valve,” said James Hoffman, general manager.
Hoffman said the pump house leak was found this morning around 11:45 a.m.
The water tank at the CHPSD office will remain onsite throughout the evening.
“Everything should be back to normal by late tonight,” said Hoffman.
