It is no longer necessary to boil water following a water main break that occurred on Sussex Turnpike Thursday.
Customers of the Randolph Township water system were notified during the night of Dec. 1 of a potential problem with the drinking water due to a water main break and were advised to boil water as a precautionary measure.
“We are pleased to report that the repairs have been completed and subsequent water quality testing demonstrates water quality to be safe,” said a statement on the township’s Web site.
“The boil water advisory is lifted and it is no longer necessary to boil water before using.”
Several precautions, however, are still being advised.
Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main.
Empty and clean automatic ice makers and water chillers.
Drain and refill hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113° F.
Service connections with a water softener/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled.
