CARLSTADT -

A water main break along Route 17 in Carlstadt badly damaged a home’s foundation, causing it to be condemned.

The water traveled from Route 17 South and went directly into the backyard of the family’s home on Ninth Street Sunday, according to officials.

The family was allowed to go back into the home Monday to remove their belongings, but they will be unable to return to the home to live for the time being.

SUEZ Water replaced the water main.

None of the neighboring homes were affected.
