From Maplewood Township, 8/13/16:

New Jersey American Water Company (NJAW) responded to a water main break.

A water main break at Mt. Vernon Avenue in Irvington is causing water pressure issues in Maplewood. Low to no water pressure is reported in the eastern side of town with the western side getting some lower pressure but still having water service.
Mayor Victor De Luca is in contact with NJAW’s Nick Pinto who reported that two of the four water valves impacted are now replaced and they are working on replacing the remaining two valves. The Mayor was told that should take another hour (approx. 11:30AM today).

Once the valves are fixed it will take several hours for the water pressure to return to normal.

NJAW is not reporting any water quality issues.
