EDISON - Middlesex Water Company says the boil water advisory affecting nearly 200 customers in Edison due to yesterday's water main break has been lifted.
The 8-inch water main break affected customers on the following streets:
Tingley Lane, Pavlocak Court, Inman Ave., Old Hickory Lane, Julie Drive, Annette Drive, Madeline Drive, Amari Drive, Irene Court, Gentore Court, Hemlock Drive, Deri Court, Barkley Court, Five Acres Drive and Louis Court.
The company says repairs have been completed and subsequent water quality testing shows the water quality is safe.
At this time, the company encourages the following measures:
1. Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main.
2. Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers.
3. Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit.
4. Service connections with a water softener/cartridge filters should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer.
Customers with questions are urged to contact Middlesex Water Company at 732-634-1500.
