SUEZ Water has announced that the boil water advisory for residents and businesses in Jersey City and Hoboken was lifted at 4 p.m. this afternoon.
According to the company, laboratory test results show that the drinking water quality meets all regulatory requirements.
The results were submitted to the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection for verification.
Upon reviewing the laboratory data, the state confirmed that it is no longer necessary for customers to boil their water.
The Boil Water Advisory was issued as a result of non-utility work performed by a contractor near a 36-inch water transmission line that supplies water to Jersey City and Hoboken.
The contractor was working in an industrial area of Jersey City, near the intersection of Howell Street and Duffield Avenue putting in sheet piling when the main ruptured.
As a precaution, SUEZ issued a Boil Water Advisory on Tuesday, April 28.
Repairs to the 36-inch main will continue.
Should customers experience any further issues they should contact customer service at 1-800-575-4433.
