[ARCHIVED] Washington Ave. Boil Advisory Notice Lifted

Boil Water advisory is lifted

Customers of Milltown Water Department located between Main St. and the Railroad Tracks were notified on 12/10/2018 of a possible problem with the drinking water due to a water main break and were advised to boil the tap water before using as a precautionary measure. 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 makes 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. 
  • Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled (as applicable)

We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and thank you for your patience. If you have any questions or comments, please contact John Eckert at 732-828-2100 ext. 137.
