UPDATE: Information Regarding Huntington Street Water Main Break

UPDATE: Water service has been restored to areas affected by today’s water main break. Water remains safe for use, but some residences may experience temporary discoloration this afternoon. 

Huntington Street has been reopened to traffic. 

Easton Avenue has been reopened its regular traffic flow.

Once full service is restored to the area, water discoloration may occur as a result of pressure changes and flushing in water mains. This is performed as part of the repair and maintenance process. Discoloration occurs as a result of dislodged iron deposits in water mains.

Water remains safe for use, but the New Brunswick Water Utility advises against running hot water or doing laundry while discoloration is present, as iron deposits may accumulate in hot water heaters and possibly stain laundry.
