BLOOMINGDALE, N.J. – Despite a recent water main break on Reeve Avenue, utility foreman Frank Neuberger said the water is safe to drink, according to a Facebook post.
“Due to the recent water main break on Reeve Ave., we are experiencing air in the system. Unfortunately due to the cold weather we were unable to flush the area at the time of the break due to the safety of the residents. If you are experiencing cloudy water and it clears up after it sits for a minute then this is due to the recent break. The water is completely safe to drink,” the post states.
He suggests residents go to the highest point in the house and run a tub or sink with cold water for a few minutes or until the water is clear.
