The Passaic Valley Water Commission on Friday lifted the boil water advisory affecting some 250,000 residents of Paterson, Passaic City, Clifton and Woodland Park, six weeks after the remnants of hurricane Ida deluged the area and contaminated the New Street Reservoir with a massive runoff.
The cleanup at the New Street Reservoir began Friday and could take up to a month, which means the boiled water advisory posted for Paterson, Passaic City, and parts of Clifton and Woodland Park will remain in effect until further notice.
The boiled water advisory for Paterson, Passaic City, and parts of Clifton that was posted a week ago after remnants of Hurricane Ida dumped more than seven inches of rain isn’t expected to be lifted anytime soon.
