The Southeast Morris County Municipal Utilities Authority (SMCMUA or Authority) will be preforming routine hydrant maintenance and flushing on the streets listed between May 17th and July 1st. The Authority uses this opportunity to examine and repair hydrants and in doing so may require the hydrants to be flushed for a period of time to test their functionality. Flushing also typically aids in cleaning the water mains and “flushes” out any built up minerals or deposits from the pipes.
What to expect:
While hydrant flushing typically won’t interrupt your water service you may notice a temporary drop in water pressure while crews are working in your area. There is also the possibility that water may become temporarily discolored. This is normal. The discolored water does not pose a health hazard; however, iron (red water) and manganese (black water) may be stirred up within the system during the flushing procedures. If this happens simply let your water run until it runs clear.
