This is an urgent notification from New Jersey American Water. Our crews are making emergency repairs due to a Main Break beginning on Thursday, July 20th, 2023 on Prospect Street in Lakewood. You reside in the affected area and may experience a service interruption or low water pressure. Repairs are expected to take approximately 10 hours to complete.

You will be notified when the boil order has been lifted.
