New Jersey American Water LIFTS Precautionary Boil Water Advisory for part of Neptune and Asbury Park

CAMDEN, NJ (May 10, 2019) – New Jersey American Water has LIFTED the boil water advisory that was issued as a precautionary measure for customers in a small part of Neptune and Asbury Park on the following streets:

  • Memorial Drive

  • Corlies Avenue

  • Springwood Avenue

  • Heck Avenue

  • Embury Avenue

  • Atkins Avenue

  • Adams Street

  • Sylvan Avenue

Analytical results from bacteriological samples taken from the water system met all state and federal water quality standards. The advisory was issued on Wednesday, May 8 as a precautionary measure after a temporary pressure loss in the drinking water system that resulted from an emergeny during a local construction project.

Customers no longer need to boil their water, but they should flush household pipes, ice makers, water fountains, etc. prior to using for drinking or cooking using these guidelines:

  • Run all cold water faucets in your home for 3-5 minutes at one time at the highest flow rate that you can without causing splashing or flooding of drains.

  • To flush automatic ice makers, make three batches of ice and discard.

  • Run water softeners through a regeneration cycle.  Follow the manufacturer’s guidelines specified in the owner’s manual. 

  • Run drinking water fountains for one minute at the highest flow rate possible.

  • Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit.

New Jersey American Water appreciates its customers’ cooperation.  If customers have any questions, they may call 1-800-272-1325. Additional information is also available on New Jersey American Water’s website at www.newjerseyamwater.com, under the Alerts Notifications.
