New Jersey American Water has lifted the precautionary boil water advisory for its customers in Irvington, Maplewood and Millburn.
The precautionary boil water advisory was issued on Saturday, March 28 after a loss of water pressure following a 24-inch water main break along Glen Avenue in Millburn.
We are pleased to report that the repairs have been completed and subsequent water quality testing shows the water quality to be safe.
THE BOIL WATER ADVISORY IS LIFTED and it is no longer necessary to boil your water before using. The following measures are strongly encouraged at this time:
· Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main. · Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers. · Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit. · Service connections with a water softener/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
New Jersey American Water appreciates its customers’ patience and cooperation while the boil water advisory was in effect. Those with further questions may contact New Jersey American Water at 800-272-1325.
