Boil water advisory lifted in Jersey City

United Water Jersey City officials announced Friday that the boil water advisory for customers in Jersey City has been lifted.

The boil water advisory was issued following a break in a 36-inch water pipeline on Wednesday evening. The pipeline is located on Route 7 in South Kearny.

The advisory was lifted by the New Jersey State Department of Environmental Protection. Water samples were taken Thursday by United Water emergency personnel. Laboratory results showed the water was free of bacteriological contamination. Based off of the results, the NJDEP decided that Jersey City residents no longer had to boil their water.
