The Newark Water System is waiting for repairs to be made to the North Jersey Water Commission line before proceeding to fix the issues that are affecting Bloomfield.
"Seeing what we can do to get them turned back on once this gets totally fixed," says Nutley Mayor Joe Scarpelli.
Officials say as many as 300,000 residents could be impacted.
