Annual Hydrant Flushing: March 31 - April 30, 2014
Annual Hydrant Flushing
March 31, 2014 – April 30, 2014
No flushing will occur April 14 – April
The Annual Hydrant Flushing will take place on
weekdays from MARCH 31st to APRIL 30th between the hours of
9AM-3PM. WE WILL NOT BE FLUSHING DURING THE
HOLIDAY WEEK OF APRIL 14th - 18th. This is being done
to remove accumulated sediment from our water mains.
We have divided the Township
into 4 areas based on which water tank feeds the area. Please refer to the Hydrant Flushing Area Map
to determine which area you are in. The
areas will be flushed in the following order: red, yellow, blue then green. Please monitor the Progress Map and Street List
to follow our progress. The rate of
progress will be directly affected by the flushing conditions found as our team
moves through the Township.
Please keep in mind that
discolored water could occur in your home or business at any time during the flushing period but more
likely when we flush the water mains in your neighborhood. The progress map will be updated periodically to show
areas that have been completed.
SCHOOLS AND RESTAURANTS WILL BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE
OF FLUSHING IN THEIR AREA.
This process could result in
discolored/cloudy water or low pressure during and immediately following the
daily flushing. If you experience discolored
water, open the cold-water faucets on the lowest floor of the house and allow
the water to run until it clears (usually within 30 min). If it persists, call
the Water and Sewer office at 973-331-3330.
Discolored or cloudy water is safe to consume, but not
desirable for use. We strongly recommend that water softeners be bypassed during the day
throughout the flushing period and and that you refrain from doing laundry and using water
for drinking and cooking from 9am to 5pm.

legal, and banking items. Residents can pull up to the paper destruction truck
and have their cartons emptied into the shredder.

less costly for all residents!
