“For residents experiencing no to low water pressure during the ongoing repairs, the Office of Emergency Management is distributing water on a first-come, first-served basis at Third and Harrison Streets,” Hoboken OEM tweeted at 11:36 a.m.

Veolia Water NJ indicated that the water main break occurred early in the morning, tweeting that crews were arriving to perform emergency repairs on Harrison Street, between 2nd and 4th Streets, at 5:44 a.m.

On Facebook, the Hoboken Housing Authority indicated that bathrooms are available at the community rooms at 411 Marshall Drive and 221 Jackson St., as well as that the city provided a water truck located on 3rd and Jackson Streets.

Residents in need of water will have to bring their own containers.

“Main cracked near an interconnect, which required additional time to isolate. Once the main is replaced, service will be restored on Harrison. We appreciate your patience as our crews continue to work in these frigid conditions,” Veolia wrote on Twitter at 12:55 p.m.
