Water Main Break In Bergen County

Cliffside Park in Bergen County as well as surrounding towns are slowly regaining water pressure after the weight of a crane lying on Anderson Avenue caused a 24 inch water main to become damaged. Local businesses and residents have noted some flooding in their stores as well as loss of pressure due to the break which was first reported at around 7a.m. According to a statement by Bergen County Executive Jim Tedesco, crane operators first noticed water coming up street as the crane boom was being lifted after work on one of the sensors was complete. As a result of the break, Fort Lee Health Officer Stephen Wielkocz ordered local summer camps, summer schools, and pre-schools to be closed for the remainder of the day but should be reopened by tomorrow. United Water emergency crews responded to the scene, isolating the water main within 2 hours. A boil water advisory will be in effect for Cliffside Park, Englewood Cliffs, and Fort Lee until further notice as crews work on-site to restore water service. Residents should boil their water for at least one full minute before being consumed.
