Boil water advisory lifted for parts of Clifton

CLIFTON - The Passaic Valley Water Commission has announced that the boil water advisory was lifted for some of its customers east of Broad Street in Clifton, as well as for Passaic Park, Nutley and North Arlington.

According to the Passaic Valley Water Commission, the lifted boil water advisory applies only to the area of Clifton and Passaic Park bordered by the following roads: Route 3 to Broad St., South of Broad St. to Paulison Ave., South of Paulison Ave. to Passaic Ave., North of Passaic Ave. to Van Houten Ave., South of Van Houten to the Passaic River, and the Passaic River to Route 3.

The remaining area of Clifton originally cited in the advisory is still under a boil water advisory.

A 51-inch water transmission pipe ruptured Tuesday afternoon, gushing millions of gallons of water into a parking lot on Broad Street which set off eight secondary water main breaks throughout the city yesterday.

The broken water lines left thousands of customers in Clifton and surrounding areas without water or with low water pressure.

Affected customers can expect pressure to be restored by the end of the day, according to Passaic Valley Water Commission officials.
