Watermain Flushing 2024

NOTICE TO CALDWELL RESIDENTS
 
WATER MAIN FLUSHING TO BEGIN IN CALDWELL

 

CALDWELL- As part of the Borough’s routine maintenance of the water distribution system, the Water Department will be inspecting and flushing fire hydrants.  We will start on Monday, April 15, 2024 between the hours of 9:00pm and 1:00am.  Work will begin in the easterly section of the Borough, on Ryerson Avenue and proceed westerly to Lane Avenue.  This operation should last about three weeks. Click the link below for the schedule, to see when we will be in your neighborhood.

 

Flushing watermains involves systematic opening of fire hydrants allowing them to flow for several minutes.  Residents may experience a drop in water pressure and slight discoloration in their water following the flushing.  If this occurs, it is suggested that the residents run their water until it clears.  The discoloration is temporary and presents no ill health effects, but may cause staining on laundry.  Residents are therefore advised to wait until the water is clear before washing clothes.
