Residents Must Boil Water


Share post:

The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection has issued a boil water notice for Verona, effective immediately town officials say.

The alert comes in the wake of a significant break in a Passaic Valley Water Commission (PVWC) main in Little Falls.

Verona has been getting its water from PVWC reservoirs since its wells were shut down in August 2021. Verona must install a new filtration system on those wells.

  1. It would be helpful to know exactly what is meant by “boil water notice”. Does it need to be brought to boil then cooled, or boiled for an amount of time before cooling to drink?

  2. We are way behind schedule on it, for reasons that are generally beyond our control like the pandemic disruption to supply chains and the fact that more and more states are cracking down on PFAS. Full story update soon.

  3. This source says main break. NorthJersey dot com reports no break, just pumping station malfunction. What’s the story?

  4. In a post to Instagram on August 7, the Passaic Valley Water Commission said there had been a main break at its Little Falls pumping station.

  5. Not sure what you mean and why the quotation marks are necessary. Most stories are ongoing stories that are updated as things advance. Even though MyVeronaNJ has done several stories on Verona’s water quality and water issues, we put out a new story this morning that recaps why we are getting water from PVWC.
