Water consumers in Robbins (town-wide) are experiencing periods of low pressure and outages in the distribution system due to a water main break. Periods of low or no pressure in the distribution system increases the potential for back siphonage and introduction of bacteria into the water system.
Because of this the Division of Water Resources advises that when water is restored consumers should boil all water used for human consumption (including drinking, making ice, brushing teeth, washing dishes and food preparation) or use bottled water.
Vigorous boiling for one (1) minute should kill any disease-causing organisms that may be present in the water.
This office is strongly urging the water consumers to conserve water whenever possible. This advisory remains in effect until further written notification is issued.
This advisory issued on Thursday December 20th, 2018.
(UPDATE: Friday December 21, 2018: Water Pressure has been restored throughout the town of Robbins. It is expected that the low pressure advisory to officially be lifted tomorrow afternoon. This advisory is precautionary and not mandatory.)
