Water Emergency Update BOIL WATER NOTICE LIFTED 101022
Township of Bloomfield Water Department
BOIL WATER NOTICE HAS BEEN LIFTED
October 10, 2022
The water sampling and testing completed by the Township has confirmed the water is safe to drink and the requirement for boiling can be lifted. This has been approved by the DEP.
However, the Township has not yet returned to normal pressures so all residents are urged to conserve water. Measures you can take include:
- No use of water for outdoor activities such as washing vehicles, watering lawns, washing down sidewalks or other similar activities that can be delayed until water is fully restored.
- Taking shorter showers.
- Only using appliances such as dishwashers and washing machines when they are fully loaded.
- Flushing toilets or bathroom fixtures only when necessary.
These measures are also requested of our commercial and business customers. Urging your employees to limit water use is requested. Also reviewing any water dependent uses or processes your business may use and to determine ways to limit water use is greatly encouraged.
Taking these measures will reduce water use as well as help maintain pressure within our distribution system.
The township is currently working on major improvements to provide a more significant alternate source of water that will eliminate the current water pressure concern. We anticipate these measures will go into effect within the next 24 to 48 hours.
Your cooperation during this difficult time is greatly appreciated so that we can provide safe and reliable water to all our customers over the next several days.
Further updates will be provided as the repairs continue.
