Major Water Main Break Leads to Boil Advisory for Many L. Saucon Residents

UPDATE: The boil water advisory was lifted on Friday, Feb. 6. Residents were notified by the Lower Saucon Authority by telephone. A major water main break on a critical 10-inch main early Tuesday led to the temporary closure of Bingen Road near Hickory Hill Road and left sections of Lower Saucon Township without any water or with discolored water. According to a statement posted on the Lower Saucon Authority website, the break occurred near Bingen Road and Mildred Drive just before 4 a.m., and resulted in a significant loss of water pressure throughout the central portion of the LSA system.
