Boil Water Emergency Announcement Update 10622
This is an Emergency Announcement from the Township of Bloomfield.
As indicated in previous notifications, due to a water main break on the City of Newark supply line, which required the City of Newark to shut down their supply lines to Bloomfield yesterday at 10 PM, the township is under a boil water advisory.
Where water pressure or service is either low or non-existent, water systems are required to sample and re-sample the water to verify that bacterial contaminants, such as e-coli, have not been introduced into the potable water system.
Therefore, until further notice, all water used for consumption, brushing teeth and washing dishes should be boiled for at least 1 minute before use. Further information can be found on the township website or by calling the water department at 973-680-4009.
Newark is presently working on the repair, and the township will continue to update residents through the website, our Cable TV Channels 35 on Comcast and 30 on FIOS, and through further telephone announcements.
