FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- A hydrant-flushing program starts overnight in Fair Lawn on Sunday, March 27.
The program is part of an ongoing maintenance program to insure the delivery of the highest quality water and is required by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.
To minimize inconvenience, this work will be done only between the hours of 11 p.m. and 5:30 a.m.
The flushing program will last about six weeks. Water service will not be interrupted.
During this work residents may experience some discoloration of their water. This is expected and a normal occurrence when existing water mains are disturbed.
Anyone who experiences this should use caution when washing white clothes. The discoloration poses no health hazard and the water is safe for consumption. Just allow the water to run from the tap until it clears.
For more information call 201-794-5304 or 201-794-5326 during normal working hours or 201-794-5374 at all other times.
