Boil Water Advisory LIFTED Issued for all customers in Highlands and portions of Middletown Township and Sea Bright

UPDATE AS OF 7:00 a.m. on Saturday, April 20, 2024:

BOIL WATER ADVISORY LIFT NOTICE For Highlands and portions of Middletown Township and Sea Bright (PWSID: NJ1345001)

Customers residing in Highlands, properties located north of Shrewsbury Way in Sea Bright and properties located east of the intersection of Washington Lane and Hartshorne Road in Middletown Township notified on April 18, 2024, of a 6-inch water main being hit during a township sewer rehabilitation project along Bay Avenue between Miller Street and Valley Street in Highlands and were advised to boil the tap water before using as a precautionary measure. We are pleased to report that the repairs have been completed and subsequent water quality testing shows the water quality to be safe.

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 cold-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/cartridge filter should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
  • Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled (as applicable).
