OCEAN COUNTY – SUEZ urges residents to be aware that the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Storm Prediction Center continues to forecast a strong weather system affecting our regions through tomorrow with potential for heavy rain, flooding, extremely gusty winds and power outages.
“SUEZ continues to monitor the changing weather conditions carefully, and we’re always prepared to make the proper operating adjustments necessary to maintain the integrity of our facilities and water supplies,” said Jim Mastrokalos, Director of Operations.
“Our goal is to provide uninterrupted service, and SUEZ crews are ready and available in the event of emergencies throughout the service area,” he added.
Mastrokalos also urges customers to review their personal emergency preparedness plans during weather events such as this one, which includes protecting their property as well as setting aside space for storm emergency supplies such as flashlights, batteries, first aid kits, food and water.
When storing extra water, residents should clean food-grade storage containers with soap and water then rinse thoroughly with clean water. Seal the containers with the originals tops, place a “drinking water” label on the containers and include a storage date. Customers should be careful not to store containers in areas near toxic substances such as gasoline or chemicals.
In the event of the activation of an emergency action plan, customers can get updated information by calling 877-565-1456 or by visiting the SUEZ website at: mysuezwater.com, facebook.com/Suezwatersouthjersey or twitter.com/SuezwaterSJ.
