Annual Hydrant Flushing: April 13 - May 1, 2015 Print E-mail

Annual Hydrant Flushing

April 13, 2015 – May 1, 2015

The Annual Hydrant Flushing will take place on weekdays from APRIL 13th to MAY 1st between the hours of 9AM-3PM.  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 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 Street List will be updated periodically to show streets that have been completed.


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.

Street List as of Apr 21
