Parts of Scituate will be without water for the much of Tuesday after a water main break disrupted service.

Employees from the Department of Public Works were not immediately available to comment on what caused the break, but water has been shut off on Marion Road, Marion Road Ext., east of Turner Road, Kenneth Road, Wampatuck Ave, and Turner Road from Tilden Road.

Oceanside Drive, Minot Light Ave., Park Ave., Merritt Lane, Maple Ave., and on Hatherly Road from Maple Ave to Tenth Ave will not have water as well.

Water will be off from four to six hours, the town announced.

“When water service is restored you may notice some discoloration,” town employees said on their website. “This condition will clear in a few hours and doesn’t pose as a health issue. It is recommended that the water be checked prior to any use.”

For up to date information, check the town’s website.
