Jersey City Mayor Steve Fulop tweeted just before noon that the Jersey City Municipal Utility Authority believes they have located the break at Grand and Grove and United Water has started repairs.

In a statement the city says the problem is in the interconnect valve and the crews are in the process of isolating the interconnect.

The area affected includes the Hoboken border south to Newark Avenue and Marin Boulevard west to Jersey Avenue. A boil water order is expected according to a tweet from the mayor.

A boil water order has been issued for the area. Fulop says he has asked for “additional resources” from United Water.

Pressure checks are being conducted by the Jersey City Fire Department and water tank trucks sent to Jersey City Medical Center.

CBS New York reports customers can bring clean, empty containers to 355 Grand Street to get them filled.
