Water pressure should begin to build throughout the system over the next 8 hours according to a press release updating the situation. The utility warns that “tap water may initially appear cloud” but it’s a result of excess air in the water mains resulting from the initial loss of water pressure.

Customers should also store water for drinking and sanitation purposes as well as their power company works to restore full power which is expected to be by morning.

Customers in Carteret, Edison, Highland Park, Metuchen, South Amboy, South Plainfield, and all sections of Woodbridge should continue to boil their water as order by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection .

“We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of our customers as the employees of Middlesex Water Company continue to work tirelessly to address the ongoing challenges associated with the widespread loss of electric power to our company posed by Hurricane Sandy,” said Dennis W. Doll, Middlesex Water President and CEO.

Middlesex Water last night reported the intake station that had been on generator power since last Monday had normal power restored over the weekend but lost it again Monday afternoon and the generator failed.
