MECHANICSBURG, Pa. (WHTM) -

Approximately 50 United Water customers were without water Wednesday afternoon after an eight-inch water main broke in Cumberland County.

United Water spokesman Bob Manbeck said the area affected by the break is near Berkshire Drive and Salem Church Road in Hampden Township.

Service was restored at around 6:30 p.m., but the affected homes will be under a boil water advisory for a minimum of 48 hours, as recommended by Pa. Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) regulations.

Residents told abc27 News they received notices on their doors with instructions for how to proceed.

Manbeck said they do not yet know what caused the break.
