[ARCHIVED] NJ American Water Flushing of the Water System


This is an important notification from New Jersey American Water. Our crews will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in your area Sunday, May 09, 2021 through Friday, May 14, 2021 to ensure that you continue to receive high-quality water service. Flushing also allows us to test and maintain fire hydrants. When crews are working in your area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If your water is discolored, run the cold water taps only, at the lowest level of the house for about 3 to 5 minutes until the water runs clear. If discolored water occurs, please also refrain from doing laundry during that time. In keeping with American Water’s focus on safety for both customers and employees, please do not approach our crews while they work. For more information and to see a map of the affected area please go to or call 1.800.272.1325. We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding while we undertake this necessary maintenance of the water system.
