BOIL WATER ADVISORY LIFTED FOR CARTERET RESIDENTS AND AFFECTED PORT READING AND SEWAREN RESIDENTS
ISELIN, NJ, (December 11, 2020) 1;50 p.m. The Boil Water Advisory issued December 9 by Middlesex Water Company due to a large main break in Carteret, NJ has been lifted.
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.
Updates will be posted on the company’s website under Service Alerts and in the Newsroom at https://www.middlesexwater.com on the Company’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/MIDDLESEXWATER and via Twitter. Customers seeking more information may also call the company at 800-549-3802.
