The Water Bureau announces that it will begin the Spring Flushing of fire hydrants throughout the Borough starting Tuesday, May 29. The flushing crews will begin at 10:00 p.m. each night and work to 5:00 a.m. for approximately 3 weeks.
The Water Bureau will start flushing at Watchung Avenue and will work south to the East Orange boundary line.
The purpose of this program is to flush water mains, removing sediment in the lines and to operate, lubricate and test fire hydrants to insure adequate fire protection.
There may be some discoloration of water and low pressure during flushing in your area. This will be temporary and should cease upon completion of the program.
