“#Hoboken: Ruptured 16” main on Observer has been fully isolated, and pressure is returning citywide,” Veolia tweeted at 9:35 a.m.

“Crews have been working since before dawn to mitigate impacts on this Thanksgiving morning. Repairs are underway.”

Veolia first made mention of the unexpected Thanksgiving mishap at 6:33 a.m., which fortunately did not require a boil water advisory.

In a Nixle alert, the city noted that Observer Highway from Bloomfield to Willow Avenues would be closed during the repairs.

“Observer Highway will remain closed from Bloomfield Street to Willow Avenue as repairs to the water main continue. Residents and visitors should enter or exit along the North end of Hoboken if possible.”
