Pine Acres Manor I water has been restored. There is a boil water alert in your area please refer to the notice on your door.

FOR CUSTOMERS OF     Manchester Water Utility       PWSID# NJ1518005
January 22, 2020
Manchester Water Utility is providing notification that a water main break has occurred at 200 Block of Main Street in Pine Acres Manor ( in front of 239 Main Street in Pine Acres Manor) which has caused approximately 152 customers within our service area to be without water or experience a significant loss of pressure. A potential or actual threat to the quality of water being provided to you currently exists. As a precaution, we are implementing a  Boil Water Advisory until testing of the water supply is deemed satisfactory.

What should I do? What does this mean?

Effective immediately and until further notice, customers within the impacted service area, 200 Block of Main Street in Pine Acres Manor ( in front of 239 Main Street in Pine Acres Manor), are instructed to bring tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow the tap water to cool before using, or use bottled water. Boiled or bottled water should be used for drinking; preparing foods; mixing baby formula, food, juices or drinks; washing vegetables and fruit; cooking; making ice; brushing teeth; and washing dishes until further notice. Boiling kills bacteria and other organisms in the water.
The following measures are also recommended:
  • Throw away uncooked food or beverages or ice cubes made with tap water during the day of the advisory;
  • Keep boiled water in the refrigerator for drinking;
  • Do not swallow water while showering or bathing;
  • Rinse hand-washed dishes with a diluted bleach solution (one tablespoon of household bleach per gallon of tap water) or clean your dishes in a dishwasher using the hot wash cycle and dry cycle;
  • Do not use home filtering devices in place of boiling or using bottled water; most home water filters will not provide adequate protection from microorganisms;
  • Use only boiled water to treat minor injuries;
  • Provide pets with drinking water that has been boiled (and cooled).

Please continue to boil your water or use bottled water until you are notified that the water quality is satisfactory. This advisory will remain in effect until repairs are completed and testing shows the water quality to be safe.

We are working as quickly as possible to restore your water quality. Thank you for your patience. If customers have any questions please contact:
