Water woes after lightning hits plant

August 05, 2007|From Times Wire Reports

Lightning struck twice at a water plant that serves more than 750,000 people leaving some with little or no running water.

United Water New Jersey told Harrington Park residents to boil water before consuming it and ordered them not to use any water for nonessential purposes.

The plant, in Haworth, was struck Friday night and then again about midnight. The strikes cut power and hobbled the backup generators.

Harrington Park is about 22 miles northwest of New York City.
