UPDATE: Service has been restored to most areas, but the boil water advisory remains.

Officials with Suez Water have issued a boil-water advisory for three municipalities in Dauphin County and one in Perry County following a water main break earlier Wednesday morning.

The advisory has been issued for Penbrook, Lower Paxton Township and Susquehanna Township in Dauphin County and for Marysville in Perry County, officials said on Facebook.

The break is in the area of Linglestown Road and Sixth Street in Susquehanna Township. Many customers have reported no water service or low water pressure.

As of 9 a.m., it was was unclear if service had been restored.

The company posted a message on its Facebook page at about 6:30 a.m., but many commenters said the problems started long before the post was written.

Customers have been voicing their frustrations with the company online for most of the morning.”I would be more than happy to boil water, if we had some!” one woman wrote.
