Seven weeks after Ida, tens of thousands of people in North Jersey will soon have useable water coming from their taps.
More than 250,000 people have been under the boil water advisory since remnants of Hurricane Ida brought torrential rainfall that overflowed and contaminated the New Street Reservoir.
It provides tap water to people in Passaic, Paterson, Woodland Park, and Clifton.
News 12 New Jersey was told it should get an explanation of how, and why this happened and the steps that are needed to be taken to prevent this from happening again.
The announcement is scheduled for 11 a.m. at the grounds of the New Street reservoir.
