A multi-million dollar project begins to permanently fix the broken water mains at the Swimming River Reservoir in Monmouth County. New Jersey American Water officials say the work will be done in two segments costing $9.5 million.

The bridge and water main collapse in Lincroft affected about 285,000 Monmouth County residents in 22 communities in late June. Several investigations have been launched, including one that's currently in progress ordered by the Board of Public Utilities requiring the utility to hire a Special Reliability Master.
