3rd water main breaks in Hoboken, boil water advisory remains in effect (3/29/13)

HOBOKEN - United Water workers have finished repairing the last broken water main in Hoboken.

The 30-inch pipe on Willow Street and 14th Avenue was broken by a construction crew yesterday. Crews put in a new 8-foot main this morning.

There was also a leak this morning in a pipe connected to a house on Park Avenue and 14th Street, and water was shut off to residents there.

Workers also fixed a 12-inch pipe at the intersection of Willow and Eighth Avenue that flooded basements and submerged cars yesterday morning. The water main break caused a sinkhole that swallowed a car.

Officials say Hoboken residents should continue to boil water for at least one minute before drinking, cooking or making ice. Water does not need to be boiled to shower, or to wash dishes or clothing, according to officials.

United Water says the advisory will be lifted once officials receive water quality test results.
