    WEST PITTSTON — A water main line broke on Monday at the intersection of Luzerne Avenue and Linden Street, causing some residents to have low water pressure and dirty water.

    The roadway was closed while the problem was being repaired.

    In a statement, borough officials recommended boiling drinking water as a precautionary measure

    Police asked residents to avoid travelling in that area, because they anticipate road closure and active construction.

    Construction crews along with Pennsylvania American Water crews worked to fix the break.
