Water Main Breaks Lead to Boil Water Advisory in Bucks County Town

A boil water advisory is in effect for a Bucks County town after several water main breaks caused extensive damage.

On Sunday, around 7 a.m., several water main breaks occurred near a 12-inch main on Bustleton Pike in Northampton Township causing extensive road damage. Breaks also occurred under a Sunoco petroleum pipeline that crosses Bustleton Pike.

Officials closed down the street between Tanyard and Lower Holland roads due to the breaks. Several customers in the area reported dirty water which officials said was caused by a sudden surge of water after the breaks occurred.

PennDOT and Sunoco officials continue to monitor the repairs of the pipeline while crews continue to replace sections of the main. Crews are also analyzing bacteria samples. On Monday officials issued a boil water advisory for sections of the town due to a loss of pressure caused by the repairs.
