The boil water advisory remains in effect for the Washington Crossing Estates development. The repair to the damaged water main in Washington Crossing Estates has been fixed. The water
system has been disinfected, however, the boil water notice remains in effect. Water samples will be sent out for testing on Monday February 8, 2016. We anticipate the test results will be returned approximately 48 hours after they are submitted to the laboratory. We will advise residents of when the results are received. Please refer to the township website at www.hopewelltwp.org or the Hopewell
Township Health Department Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/HopewellHealthMercerNJ for boil water notice information.  If you have further questions please contact the Hopewell Township Health
Department at 609-737-0605 x636 or email at healthofficer@hopewelltwp.org

Water Main Break Update/ Boil Water Advisory      Friday   February 5, 2016

The Township of Hopewell is issuing a Boil Water Advisory for residents within the Washington Crossing Estates homes served with municipal water, due to a line break. 

This is a standard procedure whenever a loss of pressure occurs which may compromise the quality of your drinking water.

Hopewell Township is making every possible effort to resolve this situation, as a precaution, the Boil Water Advisory is required until testing of the water supply is completed and the water deemed satisfactory for consumption. 

Effective immediately and until further notice, bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow the tap water to cool before using for:

 

  • Drinking.
  • Preparing foods, washing vegetables and fruit.
  • Cooking.
  • Making ice cubes.
  • Taking medications.
  • Brushing teeth.
  • Mixing baby formula, food, juices or drinks. 

 

Hopewell Township also recommends the following steps:

  • Throw away uncooked food of beverages or ice cubes if made with tap water during the day of the advisory.
  • Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking.
  • Rinse hand-washed dishes for a minute in dilute bleach (one tablespoon of household bleach per gallon of tap water) or clean your dishes in a dishwasher using the hot wash cycle and dry cycle.
  • Do not swallow water while you are showering or bathing.
  • Provide pets with boiled water after cooling.
  • Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using bottled water; most home water filter will not provide adequate protection from microorganisms.
  • Use only boiled water to treat minor injuries.

Please be advised that the Township of Hopewell is doing all it can to make sure that your water is of the highest quality. 

We will notify our residents as soon as the advisory is lifted. 

If you have an emergent question please call the Hopewell Township Health Department at (609) 737-0120 during business hours or Hopewell Township Police Non-Emergency number (609) 737-3100 on nights and weekends to speak to a Health Department representative.

General guidelines on ways to lessen the risk of infection by microbes are available from the EPA Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
