Advisory: Boil Your Water



    Meet Four Inspiring Kids Tackling Cancer

    Several New Jersey communities are under boil water advisories this morning.

    In Middlesex County, the Middlesex Water Company advises customers to boil their water for one minute before consuming it -- whether you're feeding your pets, brushing your teeth, or cooking.

    Although officials say it is not necessary to boil it for bathing or washing dishes or clothes.

    There's also an boil-water order up for customers of United Water of New Jersey.

    Crews are working on restoring water pressure to homes and businesses in Bergen and Hudson Counties.

    The company says boil your water until further notice.

    It also asks that you only use water for essential needs like cooking drinking and bathing.

    And on Long Island, in East Farmingdale, 2,800 customers are being asked to boil their water before using it, due to an earlier loss of power.

    That precautionary measure in effect through today at least.
