Live in Hoboken? You better boil your water

A water main break that happened in south Hoboken on Sunday afternoon is continuing to cause problems after flooding parts of the city.

Although water pressure has been restored to the city affected by the break, residents have been advised to boil their water “until further notice,” according to published reports.

The water main break and the resulting flood shut down many of the streets in the city’s south side prompting city officials to advise residents to avoid the south and to take mass transit.

NJ.comreported that five water tankers “have been stationed at city firehouses to help restore pressure, while the others are located at 76 Bloomfield Street, 310-320 Jackson Street, City Hall (94 Washington Street), 311 13th Street, 14th Street and Sinatra Drive and in front of Hoboken High School (900 Clinton St.).”

There have been no injuries reported from the flooding and officials hope to remove the flood waters by Monday afternoon.
