Wednesday was the second time in recent memory that crews were called to the area for a water main break.

“We were here. We fixed this before about a month ago, and so the hole was filled with stones. So we had stone all over the road, but we got that cleaned up to make the road passable,” said Shawn Bryan of the Municipal Authority of the Township of Robinson.

Officials said the age of the pipe and the cold weather contributed to Wednesday’s break.
