Water Main Break: Bloomfield St.

6/5/2008 Update:

Here’s a photo of workers attending to the broken water main. They indicated it should all be wrapped up “in a couple hours.”

I finally found out why residents were complaining of low-water pressure, or none at all this morning.

There is a small water main break on Bloomfield Street between 6th and 7th Streets. The road will be closed for the remainder of the day while repairs are done.

this city is very old and that’s probaly the a sencible answer but not all the time. as for when there’s a water main brake most of the time there is NO pressure so you wont have to worry about boiling. but if there was a reason to boil they would get the word out

so what’s the deal here? boil water or not? United Water gets off the hook WAY too easy all the time, let’s be candid. they always defer to the “old infrastructure” of Hoboken, but the fact is this is the line of business they chose to be involved with. their deferral is cowardly, and it’s about time they be held accountable for their piece of the puzzle in this whole water supply system mess.
