Public Notice to Boil Water
The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection is requiring your water system of the need to boil their water prior to consumption.
To ensure destruction of any possible harmful bacteria and other possible microbes, water for drinking, cooking, and making ice should be boiled and cooled prior to use. The water should be brought to a vigorous, rolling boil and then boiled for two minutes. In lieu of boiling, you may purchase bottled water or obtain water from some other suitable source.
When it is no longer necessary to boil the water, the water system officials will notify you that the water is safe for consumption. Instructions to discontinue boiling will be issued in the same manner as this notice.
If you have questions concerning this matter, you may contact the West Milford Municipal Utilities Authority at 973-506-7330 M-F 9am – 4pm.
