FAIRFIELD - Most of the water is gone from Carl Street in Fairfield. The floodwater that remains is low enough to drive through. However, not all of Fairfield is drying out.
Along the Passaic River, the roadways and basements are still full of water. Many of those homes have been evacuated. Homeowners who did not evacuate are using boats to get back and forth. The town says that water levels have gone down since this morning.
The town of Fairfield is warning residents to boil water because the floodwaters may have contaminated the supply.
The Office of Emergency Management (OEM) is handing out bottled water and cleanup kits so homeowners can begin to clean up what the floods left behind.
