SHICKSHINNY- Residents in the area woke to water woes Saturday morning as American Water began work on what they described as “Emergency Repairs.”  

About 300 customers are affected according to Susan Turcmanovich, external affairs manager for American Water.

There is a water tanker set up outside Thomas Markets in Shickshinny, Turcmanovich said.

A 12-inch break in a line along Route 11 caused the problem, she said. 

The issue affects Shickshinny Borough, Union, Plymouth and Hunlock Townships.

The company advised residents through its website that they may experience “discolored or cloudy water, low pressure or no water.” 

The company expected the work to take 10 hours to complete. Residents are notified that once service is restored to normal they should run the cold water taps for a few minutes until the water clears.
