Middlesex Water Company Issues Boil Water Order for the City of South Amboy

ISELIN, NJ -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 5, 2005 -- Residents of the City of South Amboy, New Jersey, are being advised by Middlesex Water Company to boil their water due to a water main break that occurred on South Broadway in the City of South Amboy this evening. This announcement was made in coordination with the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Middlesex Water, and the City of South Amboy.

The DEP has determined that a potential or actual threat to the water quality being provided to customers currently exists. Therefore, until further notice, South Amboy residents are required to bring their tap water to a rolling boil for one minute and allow to cool before using for consumption; drinking, ice cubes, washing vegetables and fruit, and for brushing teeth. Residents should continue to boil their water until notified that the water quality is acceptable. The Company expects that this notice will continue for the next 48 hours.

Water quality testing will be conducted by Middlesex Water as soon as repairs have been made. For more information, call Middlesex Water Company at (732) 634-1500.
