Brown water is not appealing
They say don’t boil, but…
One Hoboken411 reader sent in this lovely clip of the “refreshing” brown water coming out of the taps of some downtown residents. This was all caused by a water main break in Jersey City.
United Water issued the following statement for Hoboken residents “dancing for joy” when they see what comes out of the faucet:
“The City of Hoboken customers may have discolored water due to a broken 24-inch water transmission main in Jersey City. The water remains safe, however, customers may prefer to wait until it runs clear before using it for drinking or washing clothes.
While Jersey City customers have been advised to boil their water due to low water pressure in the city, it is NOT necessary for Hoboken customers to do so.
Water pressure in Hoboken remains within the normal range so the boil water advisory is NOT in affect for Hoboken.United Water crews are working to make the repair to the broken main as quickly as possible.”
