Water Emergency Update 10822
Water Emergency Update 10-8-22
The Township continues the ongoing coordination with NJDEP (NJ Department of Environmental Protection) and the three water utilities regarding the ongoing water emergency.
The Township has established two emergency interconnections with the Passaic Valley Water Commission - one in Nutley and one in Clifton - have resulted in stable water pressures within our system. In addition to this, the Township continues to work on a new emergency interconnection with Passaic Valley at Garrabrant Avenue. We are also in contact with the NJDEP Potable Water Division to coordinate water sampling of our distribution system with the goal of releasing us from the Boil Water requirement.
If any residents continue to experience full loss of water, please notify the Bloomfield Engineering Department at 973-680-4009. If lines are busy, please leave a message with your phone number and location and someone will return your call. You can also email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We ask that until this is fully resolved residents conserve water usage during this unprecedented emergency.
As a precaution, a boil water advisory remains in effect for the entire township, even if you are not experiencing low pressure.
Further updates will be provided as the repairs continue.
