Anglian Water engineers are expected to remain at the site of a broken sewer in Huntingdon for the rest of the weekend.
A fleet of tankers had been shipping sewage and waste water away from the incident in Hartford Road so that nearby residents could continue flushing their toilets and using washing machines.
A spokesman for Anglian Water said the sewer, which had needed a “complex” repair, had been fixed but workers would remain at the scene filling in the hole and making good the area through out the weekend.
Tankers would also be present to remove surface water, although in much reduced numbers.
The spokesman said: “We expect the repairs will be complete by Monday.”
