New Jersey American Water will perform its annual cleaning of the water distribution system to help ensure that customers continue to receive high-quality, reliable water service.
The Borough of Roselle Park’s will experience hydrant flushing exercises May 23 to June 12, 2018.
While water mains are being cleaned, it is common for customers to notice short periods of low water pressure or discolored water. If customers experience temporary water discoloration, New Jersey American Water recommends running the water until it is clear. The following steps are also encouraged:
Draw water for cooking prior to the flushing period.
Store a large bottle of water in the refrigerator for drinking.
Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher.
If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check faucet screens for trapped particles.
