The township’s website still has the original water supply warning, which states that E.coli was found and that residents should boil all water before using, but on the Mayor’s Facebook page, he posted the following update, saying that latest results show No E.coli present, but to still continue to boil water or use bottled water:
#BloomfieldNJ here is the latest update
We are following the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) notification requirements.
We are continually sampling and our latest results indicate that there was NO EColi present. It is requested that you continue to boil or use bottled water.
Hydrants will also be flushed as a precautionary measure. Additional updates will follow.
Bloomfield residents, have you received updated messages through email, texts, or robo-calls?
