Boil Water Advisory Lift Notice
Release Date: January 09, 2014

BOIL WATER ADVISORY LIFT NOTICE Customers of the Dover Water System were notified on 01/08/2014 of a possible problem with the drinking water due to a water main break, and were advised to boil the tap water before using as a precautionary measure. We are pleased to report that the repairs have been completed and subsequent water quality testing shows the water quality to be safe. THE BOIL WATER ADVISORY IS LIFTED and it is no longer necessary to boil your water before using. The following measures are strongly encouraged at this time: • Run your water faucets for 3-5 minutes to flush your service connection and interior plumbing with water from the service main. • Empty and clean your automatic ice makers and water chillers • Drain and refill your hot water heater if the temperature is set below 113 degrees Fahrenheit. • Service connections with a water softener/cartridge filter should be run through a regeneration cycle or other procedures recommended by the manufacturer. • Water reservoirs in tall buildings should be drained and refilled (as applicable). We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience. If you have any questions or comments, please contact the Department of Public Works at 973-366-2200 x. 1151; x. 3129; or x.3131.
