Warren and Watchung, NJ, lifted mandatory boiling water recommendation

WATCH – A mandatory boiling water recommendation issued Wednesday by New Jersey American Water was canceled Friday afternoon, according to the utility.

A water service disruption along Carrar Drive in Watchung between Mountain Boulevard and Glen Eagle Drive had resulted in NJAW imposing the recommendation on both Watchung and Warren Township “until testing of the water service is deemed satisfactory,” according to a press release.

The company had said customers in the two communities could experience reduced water pressure as a result of the major disruption.

According to the NJAW, if a recommendation to boil water is issued, customers should boil their tap water for a minute and let it cool before using it, or opt for bottled water instead.

Boiled or bottled water should be used for:

  • Drinking (also for pets)
  • prepare meals
  • Mixing baby food, food, juices or drinks
  • Wash vegetables and fruit
  • Cook
  • make ice cream
  • Brush teeth
  • Wash the dishes

Customers are encouraged to check the Alerts tab on New Jersey American Water’s website for future updates and to call 1-800-272-1325 with any questions.

What would happen to NJ if we were attacked by nuclear weapons?

We used Alex Wellerstein’s NUKEMAP to see what would happen if a nuclear warhead hit New York, Philadelphia, Washington, or New Jersey.

The models show what would happen in an airborne detonation, meaning the bomb would detonate in the sky causing extensive damage to structures and people below; or what would happen in a ground explosion that would have the alarming result of nuclear fallout. The models do not take into account the number of casualties that would result from fallout.
