By JOHN T. WARD

An outdoor water-use ban remained in effect throughout Monmouth County Saturday, even as officials limited a boil-water advisory to 22 towns in the aftermath of Friday’s supply failure at the New Jersey American Water plant.

The boil-water advisory remains in effect for all towns on the Green except Red Bank, which obtains water this time of year from its own wells. Tens of thousands of homes, and hundreds of restaurants and other businesses dependent on large volumes of water are affected.

NJAW customers and even those in Red Bank are asked to restrict indoor water use, while outdoor uses such as watering of lawns and car washing are prohibited.

As of noon Saturday, NJAW had given no indication of when service might be restored to normal.

Meantime, local fire officials are on heightened alert with provisions for backup support in the event of a fire.

This week, a go-getter group of restaurateurs around Red Bank and Rumson (as well as Middletown, Little Silver, Sea Bright and Shore points south) are roaring into gear with tonight’s return of the event known as A Taste of the Two Rivers, the continuation of Rumson Restaurant Month, and the kickoff to Red Bank Flavour Fixe.
