2019 Fall Hydrant Flushing - Beginning October 7, 2019

Starting on October 7, 2019, Township staff will begin the 2019 Fall Hydrant Flushing program. Activity will be Monday –Thursday for approx. 2 weeks between 7:30pm and 11:30pm. Hydrant flushing activities will be dependent on good weather.

BENEFITS OF HYDRANT FLUSHING

1. Improved Water Quality - Hydrants are flushed twice yearly to remove residue from the main pipe system, which helps keep our water clear.

2. Fire Safety and Fire Rating - Hydrant flow is important in helping control fire insurance costs.

During this time you may encounter a low water pressure and can cause a temporary cloudiness and discoloration in the water. Please check your water before doing laundry.  Run your water for a period of time and the water will clear up.

Should you have any questions, please contact the Water Department
