About 80 United Water customers in a Toms River neighborhood just off Barnegat Bay are without service this afternoon while a water main is repaired.

Homes on Beachwood Avenue, Driftwood Place, Goose Place, Ellicott Avenue, John Street and Creek Road are affected.

The homes are just east of Fischer Boulevard. Police are diverting traffic off Fischer between Oceanic Drive and Veeder Avenue.

A United Water Toms River spokesperson could not estimate a time of service restoration when the break occurred.
