Fall Hydrant Flushing Notice

Hydrant Flushing

Customers of the East Windsor Municipal Utility Authority are being notified of our semi-annual hydrant flushing program.

To maintain high quality and reliable service to our customers, the East Windsor M.U.A. will begin flushing its water distribution system. For the next three weeks, the East Windsor M.U.A. will be clearing harmless mineral deposits and sediment that may have built up over time inside the pipes.

Beginning October 15, 2013 and the through the week of October 28, 2013 the East Windsor M.U.A. will be working in sections of the township opening fire hydrants to create increased water flows and Aflush@ sediment from its pipes, monitor water flows and pressures, and provide visual inspection of the hydrants. When hydrants are being flushed, customers may notice a drop in water pressure or may experience discolored water. This is a normal part of the process. East Windsor M.U.A. advises customers to let their water run until it is clear.

The M.U.A. is pleased to report that at no time will the water quality be compromised and that the water is safe to be used. While the discolored water might not be aesthetically pleasing, the East Windsor M.U.A. assures its customers that the quality of water will meet all primary (health related) standards of the U.S. Safe Drinking Water Act.

During the flushing program, East Windsor M.U.A. is offering its customers the following additional tips including:

Below is a list of the schedule dates of the areas we will be flushing. During this period, please place garbage and recycling containers behind the curb to avoid obstruction. The M.U.A. is requesting that during the fall flushing period if their customers refrain from placing loose leaves at the curb as this will only create a problem for the storm drains. Place the leaves at least a foot from the curb to allow the water to run freely.

If you have any questions or comments, please contact the East Windsor Municipal Utility Authority at (609) 443-6000.
