CLARK, NJ - Crews continue to repair the 36-inch water main that broke yesterday afternoon beneath Madison Hill Road.  A new valve is being installed in the pipe and repairs are expected be completed by later today.  Richard Barnes, External Affairs Manager for New Jersey American Water Company, said service should be restored to those customers still without water by early evening.  

Once service is restored, residents may experience some water discoloration and are advised to let the taps run for a few minutes to clear the lines.  There will not be any usage or boiling restrictions in place.
