Water Hydrant Flushing Program

Flushing of all hydrants within the Township is done at least once per year, usually in the spring.

The flushing is done overnight from 11PM until 7AM, over a four week period.

All hydrants are inspected and flushed to clear the water lines of any debris and to make sure that the hydrants are operating correctly. Hydrants that need repair are taken out of service and repaired during regular working hours.

The Water Department asks the cooperation of all residents in using a minimal amount of water during these hours. Temporary discoloration of the water may result from flushing, therefore, water should be allowed to run long enough so as to allow any sediment in the lines, including laundry areas, in the home to clear.

Should discoloration continue for more than three hours, please call the Township Water Division office at (973) 694-5090, between the hours of 7:00am and 3:30pm.
