Water pressure problem in NJ borough closes schools for day
JAMESBURG, N.J. (AP) — A New Jersey borough that had an issue with water pressure all over the area has closed school for the day.
Jamesburg officials say school was cancelled Wednesday because of a water valve malfunction that resulted in low or non-existent water pressure across the entire borough. Jamesburg’s schools superintendent Brian Betze tells NJ.com that district officials realized around 6 a.m. that there was no water anywhere in the borough and decided they could not open their two schools.
Betze says water pressure was returning to the schools around Wednesday afternoon. He says schools will add an extra school day to the academic year’s calendar, with the academic year ending with an early-dismissal day on June 28 instead of June 27.
