Township of Bloomfield Water Department

October 6, 2022

This is an update regarding the Bloomfield Water Emergency notification. The City of Newark continues to make repairs on their main supply line to Bloomfield.  

Some areas of the Township will continue to experience low pressure over the next several hours.

If any residents are experiencing a 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 send an e-mail to

As a precaution, a boil water advisory remains in effect for the entire township, even if you are not experiencing low pressure. Bloomfield Water customers are instructed to bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow the tap water to cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking; preparing foods; mixing baby formula, food, juices or drinks; washing vegetables and fruit; cooking; making ice; brushing teeth; and washing dishes until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.

Boiling water is required even if your residence or business does not experience low pressure and should continue after pressures return to normal until further notice.

Further updates will be provided.
