ALERT FROM NJ AMERICAN WATER

Posted on August 30th, 2021

FYI... JUST IN CASE YOU DID NOT RECEIVE THE ROBO CALL THAT NJ AMERICAN WATER  MADE TO ALL THEIR CUSTOMERS THIS WEEKEND:

This is an important notification from New Jersey American Water. Our crews will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in your area Monday, August 30, 2021, through Saturday, September 25, 2021, to provide you with high-quality water service. Flushing in your area will occur between the hours of 8 am and 10 pm. 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 NewJerseyamwater.com 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.
