UPDATE: Boil Water Near Lavallette LIFTED

Last modified on August 24th, 2022 at 08:22 am

Update as of 8/24, 8:19 a.m.: Boil Water Notice near Livingston, Lavallette, Taylor, 13th has been LIFTED.
Lab testing found no contamination.


Water system personnel are responding to a water leak in a service line in the 1400 block of Lavallette Avenue. Water had to be secured as quickly as possible to minimize flooding.

While repairs are underway, water will be off or low pressure for customers on Lavalette Avenue, Taylor Avenue, and their adjacent alleys, as well parts of 13th Street and Livingston Avenue. (The approximate area is shown in red on the below map.) South Davis Avenue customers are not served by the affected lines.

After repairs are complete and service has been restored, a Boil Water Notice will be in effect for these customers (not including South Davis Avenue customers). The earliest that laboratory testing can be completed and the notice lifted is Wednesday, August 24.

Boil Water Notices are issued out of an abundance of caution because positive pressure has been lost and the possibility of contamination exists, not because contamination has been detected. The presence or absence of contamination must be confirmed by an independent lab through a testing process that requires at least 24 hours after delivery of a sample. Samples cannot be taken until the leak has been repaired and service has been restored. Samples can only be submitted during business hours.

Notification will be sent out when the Boil Water Notice is lifted. We regret any inconvenience this may have caused and appreciate your patience during this time.
