UPDATED 12:30 p.m. — Most of Hoboken is experiencing issues with the water pressure, said Spokesman Juan Melli, but there is water in Hoboken.
A 30 inch water main was hit during construction at the Viaduct on Thursday morning, causing much of Hoboken to be without water.
United Water issued a boil advisory on Thursday.
"Hoboken residents should boil their water for at least one minute for the following: drinking, cooking, or baking, making ice cubes, taking medication, brushing teeth, washing food, mixing baby formula or food, mixing juices or drinks, feeding pets, and all other consumption," United Water advised residents.
While some water returned on Thursday around noon, water levels were expected to fluctuate as United Water went on to fix the main.
“We are urging all of our customers in the City to conserve their water usage so we can at least maintain some pressure in the affected area,” said Tom Neilan, director of operations for United Water.
United Water was already on the scene after an unrelated water main break on Thursday morning around 3 a.m. on Ninth and Willow.
Neilan said the first break, the 12-inch main, should be repaired this afternoon. He said the company will not have an estimate for repair of the 30-inch break until the water is shut off and inspectors can asses the damage.
It was unclear how long it would take until full water returned.
"As three valves are closed, water pressure throughout Hoboken will gradually continue to rise," the city announced
