Residents of Hoboken, New Jersey, were under a boil-water advisory on March 1, after a water main break on February 27 left some locals without running water on February 28.
According to Veolia Water North Jersey, the main broke at Madison Street and Observer Highway “after contractors working for another utility struck the line.”
The Hoboken Office of Emergency Management (HOEM) provided a list of portable toilet locations and said drinkable bottled water was available at the Public Works Garage located at Observer Highway and Willow Avenue.
