Boil Water Advisory Lifted For Hoboken

The water company that serves most of Hoboken has lifted a boil water advisory that was issued in the wake of some recent pipe and water main breaks.

United Water lifted the advisory at 3 p.m. Saturday, after testing showed the water meets safe drinking water standards. The state Department of Environmental Protection concurred with the findings.

A 30-inch pipe on Willow Street and 14th Avenue was broken Thursday by a construction crew. Crews worked through the night to finish repairs and also fixed a 12-inch pipe at Willow and Eighth Avenue that flooded basements and submerged cars.

Another leak was reported Friday in a pipe connected to a house on Park Avenue and 13th Street Friday. The latest leak occurred Saturday on Jefferson Street, between 8th and 9th streets.

The New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection recommends that customers take the following actions even with the boil order lifted:

· Flush service connection and interior plumbing for 3-5 minutes with water from the restored main.

· Empty and clean automatic ice makes and water chillers.

· Homes with water softener/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedure recommended by the manufacturer.

· Drain and refill hot water heater if temperature is set below 113 degrees F.
