ISELIN, NJ, (February 21, 2018 - 5:00 PM) The Boil Water Advisory issued yesterday February 20, 2018 for residents in the Clara Barton section of Edison and the Fords section of Woodbridge, NJ (north of Route 287) by Middlesex Water Company due to a 48-inch water transmission main break has been lifted. It is no longer necessary to boil your water before using.
The following measures are strongly encouraged at this time:
- Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main.
- Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers.
- Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit.
- Service connections with a water softener/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
