Water System Flushing-Hydrant Flushing: April 16, 2012 - May 4, 2012
ON WEEKDAYS - APRIL 16th to APRIL
20th, APRIL 23rd to APRIL 27th & APRIL 30th
to MAY 4th, 9AM-3PM THE ANNUAL
TOWN WIDE WATER SYSTEM FLUSHING OF HYDRANTS WILL BE HELD.
The purpose is to remove accumulated sediment in
water mains. This process could result in
discolored/cloudy water or low pressure during & immediately following the
daily flushing. If you experience
discolored water, open the cold-water faucets on the lowest floor of the house
& allow the water to run until it clears (usually within 30 min). If it
persists, call the W/S office at 973-331-3330.
Discolored or cloudy water is potable, but not desirable for use.
We strongly recommend that water softeners
be bypassed during the day throughout the flushing period and refrain from
doing laundry & using water for drinking and cooking from 9am to 5pm. FLUSHING IN THE
FIRST WEEK WILL BEGIN IN THE NORTHERN AREA, SECOND WEEK THE MIDDLE AREA AND
THIRD WEEK IN THE PINE BROOK AREA. Please
keep in mind that discolored water could occur at any time during the flushing
period but more likely when we flush the water mains in your neighborhood.
SCHOOLS & RESTAURANTS WILL BE
NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF FLUSHING IN THE
