COEYMANS, N.Y. -- The Pieter B. Coeymans Elementary School was closed Tuesday due to a water main break.

According to officials, an estimated 100 people are affected by the break that occurred early Tuesday morning. This marks the fourth water main break this season.

"With the frost getting deeper, and then you gets those warm weather and it brings the frost up and it gets cold again. It just wreaks havoc on the old systems. It's a lot of work but we know what comes with it," explained Jason Leonard, the chief plant operator for Ravena.

Leonard says it won't take long for the main to be fixed.
