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.
