Millburn Office of Emergency Management is releasing the following information:
1) The New Jersey American Water Company announced the lift of the boil of water alert effective immediately throughout the entire Township except for the following locations:
a. Clinton Avenue, from Clinton Place to Sagamore Road
b. Sagamore Road, from Mountain Avenue to Fairview Terrace.
2) This afternoon the elected officials from several surrounding communities met in Summit and had a conference call with the President of Jersey Central Power and Lighting Company – Donald Lynch because of the leadership of State Senator Kean, Assemblyman Bramnick, Assemblywoman Munoz.
Mr. Lynch’s information was not encouraging and appeared to be haphazard and incomplete. For example JCPL reported to Mayor Haimoff that there were 13-trucks operating within the Township. Police units were dispatched throughout the community and only found 7-trucks operating.
Millburn Township shares your frustration and will be pressing for an investigation and hearings on the State level. In a response to a letter written by Millburn The Board of Public Utilities has already stated to Millburn that there will be hearings by the end of the month.
3) More and more power is being restored throughout the Township, most areas of the Glenwood section have been turned on with limited outages still in the Chatham Road area. In addition, most of the Wyoming Area has also been restored. Work has begun in the South Mountain area, but JCPL are unsure how long the restoration will take.
Millburn OEM will continue to provide the most current information in a timely manner.
