LAKE COMO, N.J. — Even though it’s been almost seven months since Hurricane Sandy came through the New Jersey shoreline many residents are still feeling its effects, according to CBS New York News.

Some Jersey Shore residents claim that their drinking water is undrinkable, noted the article.

Heather Albala-Doyle said she has had to deal with murky, discolored water for months.

“I can’t be nice about this anymore,” Albala-Doyle added. “Beyond frustrating to know that I am paying for water that I can barely use.”

In order to avoid using the dirty water, Albala-Doyle has been spending $80 a month on bottled water, stated the article.

“We are not cooking with it, we are not brushing our teeth with it, we are doing nothing with it,” she continued.
