New Jersey American Water has issued an urgent notification for its Summit customers due to a water main break in the area of River Road between Morris Avenue and Butler Parkway. Crews will make emergency repairs beginning at noon today.

Residents in the affected area may experience discolored or cloudy water, low water pressure, or no water. Repairs are expected to take approximately four hours to complete. When water service is restored, customers may experience discolored water. If your water is discolored, run the cold water taps only, at the lowest level of the house for approximately three to five minutes until the water runs clear.

If you are a landlord and water service is in your name, please inform your tenants so they are aware of this impact to their water service.

For more information or to see a map of the affected area please go to the NJ American Water website at or call 800.272.1325.

The Summit Police Department advises people to avoid travel in the area until after the evening rush hour.

Thank you.
