Accidental water alert

Users of the Voyent Alert emergency app in Princeton may have been intrigued by an update they received on Monday.

The app sent users information that a long-standing boil water advisory for much of the city had been downgraded.

However, the city was quick to explain that this was a mistake.

“Please note that the boil water advisory is still in effect for most of Princeton. There has still been no change in this situation”, says the city’s response on social media.

The app automatically stopped the boil water advisory because it was more than two years old, resulting from devastating floods in late 2021. Recovery and restoration work is still ongoing.

“The alert has been reactivated and will remain in effect until the new water system is operational,” the city explained.

“We apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”
