New Jersey American Water will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in your area Sunday, April 7th thru Friday, April 12th from 9 p.m. to 4 p.m. to ensure that you continue to receive high-quality water service. Flushing also allows us to monitor and maintain fire hydrants. When crews are working in your area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If your water is discolored, let it run until it runs clear before using. This should only take a few minutes.
