There is a major water main break in Jersey City. In order to keep a constant water supply to the hospitals and medical facilities in Jersey City, our water supplier Passaic Valley Water diverted water for the health and safety of the citizens of Jersey City.
When water is diverted in this fashion it causes a disruption in the flow of water that stirs up the minerals in our pipes resulting n brown water.
The water is safe. Please run your cold water tap 10-15 to clear any discoloration. Thank you.
