Spread the word! Newark is distributing bottled water to families in areas affected by lead.

This weekend, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) announced that Newark water filters, distributed earlier this year to combat the lead crisis in the city, may not be performing as expected. Out of an abundance of precaution, residents in the affected areas are being urged to use bottled water until further notice.

Families in the affected areas who have received filters can pick up bottled water at the following locations:

The City of Newark Department of
Health and Wellness

110 William Street

Bo Porter Sports Complex
378 Lyons Avenue

Boylan Street Recreation Center
916 South Orange Avenue

Vince Lombardi Center
201 Bloomfield Avenue
