After a water main, one of the main pipes that carries water, broke near Van Houten Street, the city declared a drinking water advisory, to inform residents of Paterson to avoid drinking water from the tap without boiling.

Some residents of the area around Mill Street and Curtiss Place are experiencing a water outage; while others may be receiving water that is contaminated.

The advisory read, “As a precaution, we are implementing a system wide or limited Boil Water Advisory until testing of the water supply is deemed satisfactory”.

Patersonians are told, when drinking tap water or cooking with it, to first bring it to a boil.
