Please be advised that valve work performed on Route 9W has now been completed and full service has been restored to customers. A boil water advisory will now be in effect-

Following necessary valve repair work in the area, a boil water advisory has issued has been issued for customers in Bergen County from East Clinton Avenue in Tenafly south along Route 9W to the George Washington Bridge in northern Fort Lee.
Customers are ordered to boil their water before using it for drinking or cooking purposes. The boil water order is a precautionary measure following a main break in the area. All customers that have been affected have been individually notified.
Customers are ordered to boil their water for one minute for the following uses: drinking, cooking, baking, washing dishes, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula, mixing juices or drinks, feeding pets or other consumption. Water does not have to be boiled for showering or washing clothes.
United Water emergency crews will collect water samples to monitor the safety of the drinking water. It typically takes 24-48 hours to administer tests to two sets of samples and receive results, so it is important for customers in the affected area to continue to boil water until further notice. Customers will be further notified through an additional “call out” by telephone.
For current information customers can visit or call 800-422-5987.
United Water New Jersey serves 800,000 people in Bergen and Hudson counties.
