Hurricane Sandy's jaunt through Fair Lawn had a minimal impact on borough water sources and residents can safely use and drink tap water.
"We're in great shape," Water Department supervisor Dan Belinsky said. "The pressure, flow and quality of water were not compromised during the storm."
Belinsky said that three of the borough's 15 wells were knocked off the grid in the vicinity of Memorial Park, but that with its remaining 12 wells and additional supply from United Water and Passaic Valley Water Commission, everything is running up to speed.
The borough's water storage tanks, which were topped off in advance of the storm, remain full, Belinsky said.
A borough phone alert sent out Tuesday afternoon that asked residents without power to reduce water usage by 50 percent was issued as a precaution to ease pressure being placed on the sewer system, assistant borough manager Jim Van Kruiningen said. At the moment, however, Van Kruiningen said all of the borough's sewers are in good shape.
