A water main on Highland Avenue broke Sunday, according to resident Klaus Schnitzer, who provided these images, which show significant flooding in the road caused by the break. Crews remained on site after dark as well.

Montclair Local has left voicemails with the Montclair Water Bureau and Sewage Utility as well as Montclair police, and is awaiting a response. Deputy Fire Chief Duncan said Sunday he was aware of the break, but didn't have information on it.

UPDATE, MONDAY: About a dozen homes remained under a boil water advisory Monday, after a water main break on Highland Avenue the day before caused water and power shutoffs for several more residences.
