Water Main Break Update/ Boil Water Advisory      Friday   February 5, 2016

The Township of Hopewell is issuing a Boil Water Advisory for residents within the Washington Crossing Estates homes served with municipal water, due to a line break. 

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. 

Effective immediately and until further notice, bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow the tap water to cool before using for:

 

  • Drinking.
  • Preparing foods, washing vegetables and fruit.
  • Cooking.
  • Making ice cubes.
  • Taking medications.
  • Brushing teeth.
  • Mixing baby formula, food, juices or drinks. 

 

Hopewell Township also recommends the following steps:

  • Throw away uncooked food of beverages or ice cubes if made with tap water during the day of the advisory.
  • Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking.
  • Rinse hand-washed dishes for a minute in dilute bleach (one tablespoon of household bleach per gallon of tap water) or clean your dishes in a dishwasher using the hot wash cycle and dry cycle.
  • Do not swallow water while you are showering or bathing.
  • Provide pets with boiled water after cooling.
  • Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using bottled water; most home water filter will not provide adequate protection from microorganisms.

News & Notices

Bulky Waste collection was suspended for 2015 due to the catastrophic fire in the township public works garage.   The township has been busy restoring the damaged sections of the garage and has replaced some of the vehicles that were lost in the fire. Unfortunately, all of the equipment used to provide the Bulky Waste Program and destroyed in the fire has not been replaced due to budget constraints.

The Township is aware that residents desire to have this program restored.  In early 2016, the governing body will be discussing the Bulky Waste Program and options available to restore the program.   Until formal decisions are made regarding options for the Bulky Waste Program, it will remain suspended.
