SHALER TOWNSHIP, Pa. — A water main break shut down a portion of a Shaler road overnight.

According to Shaler police, Soose Road is shut down near Parker Street and Seavey Road.

The line was repaired around 6:30 a.m. and crews told Channel 11 they were working to get the road repaired.

Discolored water is safe for consumption unless you have health issues, according to the water authority.
