Hydrant Flushing Press Release
Mayor Thomas Lankey, the Edison Township council and Bob Smith, Director of the Edison Water and Sewer Utility, announce that the spring fire hydrant flushing program will begin on Tuesday March 30, 2021. The flushing program will take place Monday through Friday from 8:30am to 3:00pm. It is necessary for proper maintenance of our water distribution system and this procedure provides an opportunity to test and evaluate the condition of the utilities fire hydrants. In addition this will also help to remove sediment that has accumulated in the water mains. Hydrant Flushing will begin in the areas of Michelle Cir and Suttons Ln.
Residents are urged to check that their water is running clear before starting any laundry during this time, if water is still discolored after 3:00 pm, please run cold water only until clear. Daily updates on the areas that will be flushed will be updated on the water utility’s web page Edisonwaterutility.org by 3:30 pm the day prior to flushing.
If there are any questions regarding this program, residents are urged to contact the Water Utility at (732) 248-6400.
