MIDDLETOWN, N.J. - Nearly two dozen Monmouth County municipalities remained under a boil-water advisory Saturday as crews worked to repair a water-main break at a water-treatment plant in Middletown Township. County officials also were continuing a ban on outdoor water usage imposed after the break Friday afternoon at New Jersey American Water Co.'s treatment plant at Swimming River Reservoir.
New Jersey American Water serves about 55,000 people in Monmouth County. The company set up temporary distribution sites Saturday morning where customers could fill containers with water. - AP
