The Boil Water Advisory is Lifted as of 6/21/13

DRINKING WATER PROBLEM CORRECTED FOR CUSTOMERS OF HIGH CREST - WEST MILFORD

Posted:  June 21, 2013
 
Customers of PVWC-High Crest, in the High Crest Lake area of West Milford, were notified on June 20, 2013, of a problem with our drinking water due to a water main break, and were advised to boil the water before using as a precautionary measure.  We are pleased to report that repairs have been completed and that subsequent water quality testing shows the water quality to be satisfactory.
 
THE BOIL WATER ADVISORY IS LIFTED and 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 should be run through a regeneration cycle.
* Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled.
 
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example, people in apartments, nursing homes, schools, and businesses). You can do this by posting this notice in a public place or distributing copies by hand or mail.
 
We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
 
As always, you may contact Passaic Valley Water Commission's Customer Service Department at 973-340-4300 with any comments or questions.
