Need Water? Go To Middletown HS North

Motorists can drive up to tent and an NJ American Water employee will put a case in the car.

Update: The boil water advisory was lifted Monday night for the towns still affected. Water will not be distributed after July 2. -- Patch

A steady stream of people living under an inconvenient "boil water" advisory in Middletown, Holmdel, Aberdeen and Highlands came to collect drinking water at Middletown High School North parking lot on Tindall Road Monday. 

There was plenty of water to go around, said Middletown Office of Emergency Management Coordinator Charles W. Rogers III. Four tractor trailers filled with pallets of water purchased by New Jersey American Water were on site, with more coming in. 

"Everything is flowing rather smoothly, everyone is cooperating," said Rogers. An early morning motor vehicle accident involving a police vehicle happened before the water distribution service started this morning, he said and was not related to the operation. 

The high school is the sole water distribution point today, and will be open between 8 a.m. and 7 p.m. Drivers do not need to get out of cars, as the NJAW employees will even put the case of 24 bottles in car trunks. Water tanks are available for those who wish to fill their own containers. 

The high school is located at 63 Tindall Rd. Travel directions can be found on the high school's website. 

 On Saturday and Sunday water was given out at Middletown High School South and Wolf Hill Recreation Center in Oceanport, but officials said Sunday night that they will not be offering water at those locations any longer because there are now only four towns under the "boil water" advisory: Middletown, Holmdel, Aberdeen and Highlands.

Jerky, leave DEBRA alone and stop being so critical of someone just because she did not use here shift key. We got her message and I'm flagging yours.

Great job Herb - thank you for all that you and your CERT team have done, and continue to do.

My water is still disgusting. How long do you have to flush the pipes for? They recommend 5 minutes/faucet, but I've been doing it for two days now and still won't drink/touch it.
