Spring Hydrant Flushing Program 2018

Water Utility - 3/14/2018 1:59:34 PM

The Borough of Essex Fells Water Department will begin its spring hydrant flushing program on April 9, 2018 through April 20, 2018. The procedure will be carried out weekday evenings between the hours of 7:30 PM and 11 :30 PM.

Flushing will begin near Stocker Road and will progress through the Borough in a westerly direction.

This program is required for the proper preventive maintenance on the water distribution system so that any accumulated sediment can be removed from the main. The procedure also provides the opportunity to test the Borough fire hydrants.

The flushing program will last approximately two weeks, during which time residents are asked to make sure their water is running clear before doing laundry.

If there are any questions, you may contact the Water Department at (973)-226-8582 between the hours of 7:00 AM to 3:30 PM.
