Christie to Visit Oceanport, Address Water Main Break
The governor will give an update on the water main failure on Saturday at Wolf Hill Recreation Center at 1:45 p.m.
Gov. Chris Christie will visit Oceanport on Saturday afternoon to address the water main break that has placed residents of about 22 Monmouth County towns under a boil-water advisory and severely restricted water usage.
The governor will give an update at 1:45 p.m. at the Wolf Hill Recreation Area, 3 Crescent Pl., on the water main failure on Friday at the Swimming River Reservoir that prompted county officials to declare a state of emergency.
Late Friday night, the county issued a press release that said all Monmouth County towns were under the boil water advisory. On Saturday morning, officials issued the list of just 22 towns that are directly affected.
Towns directly affected by this crisis that are still under the boil-water advisory are Middletown, Holmdel, Aberdeen, Highlands, Rumson, Fair Haven, Little Silver, Oceanport, Sea Bright, Tinton Falls, Shrewsbury, Long Branch, Eatontown, West Long Branch, Deal, Allenhurst, Loch Arbor and Neptune. Monmouth Beach and Shrewsbury and Ocean townships were added this morning.
