BROOKLAWN NJ--Around 3PM today the Borough of Brooklawn announced on their facebook page that the ban on drinking water has been lifted.
As result of a water main break yesterday residents had been advised to boil their water until the state Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) tested the water.
That test normally takes 24-hours, according to the Borough's Public Works Department.
Below are two announcements that had been posted today on the Borough's Facebook page.
TODAY AT 2PM--We have received many calls in reference to the water boil notice. That was given yesterday during and after the main break. The Public Works Department, is currently waiting the results of the DEP testing of the water. We have been advised that these tests could not be done for at least 24 hours after submission. We apologize for the inconvenience. We will post the information as soon as we are informed.
TODAY AT 3PM--Attention Brooklawn residents, the water advisory has been lifted. You may resume normal water usage. Please share this information with any resident who may not have access to the internet.
Thank you for your patience
