Hydrant Flushing April 2020


FULL SUSTEM FLUSHING IS BEING PERFORMED, which means we will be opening and flowing all 70 hydrants in Farmingdale!

This is a backup to the letter that was sent out with the sewer bills. No changes to the letter except to point out the pre and post switch flushing. This can stir sediment in  the lines, and we know this can be a disturbance to your day to day quality of life but its necessary to maintain good quality water throughout the year.

Starting Sunday April 12th through Friday 17th

Changeover Pre-Flush 03/31/2020 & Post-Flush 04/06/2020

That time has come upon us again to flush the water system. The bi-yearly switching between our two sources which was completed April 1st. The Boroughs allotted diversion rights of the aquifer ground water and our service agreement with New Jersey American Water, which requires us to complete this task each time. During those switch over times we can have many small and sometimes larger issues, but one common issue is the need to clean out the water lines. To do this we need to flush the system, which sometimes stirs up some sediment in the water lines causing discolored or “brown” water issues. Unfortunately its part of operating a water system. To help you plan to avoid these times, we are supplying the scheduled dates.You can plan according to the list below to know when your area will be flushed.

What you should do as a resident to help avoid issues in your residence:

~Do not to run laundry during those periods, especially warm/hot or white loads

~Try not to use any hot water, you don't want to fill the hot water tank up with any possible line sediment

~If you have been out of the house all day, initially try to run your cold line closest to where the service comes into the house for a few moments to look for discolored water, this way you can help avoid any of it getting into the rest of your water lines in the house.

If you are experiencing any discolored water, run it until you get clear water, it should not be very long but it depends on your usage during the day and your location in the system. The confirmation of the schedule will be posted on the Borough web site the morning of the flushing so you will know of any changes to the scheduled date.

We have anticipate it to take the 5 days we outlined, but we are allowing for up to 10 days, meaning the following week if necessary to complete this process. This mainly depends on how quickly the tank recovers during the flushing and in the case of an emergency situation which would require us to possibly alter this plan. Emails will be sent out if we have any delays, deviations from this schedule will be posted on the Borough website.

FULL FLUSHING SCHEDULE Planned flushing days and locations associated:

SUNDAY EVE 04/12 – 11pm – 3am - Walnut St (N. of Hall), Academy St (North of Southard Ave), Main St (N. of Southard, West Main St

47th Annual
Farmingdale Memorial Day Parade!

Annually with over 100+ marching units, including the famous Howell High School marching unit & band, and many many other musical acts, including the CBA and Police Pipe and Drum units, Rag Time and the School of Rock rock bands as well as local dance troops, it's really a festive time.
The State Police mounted unit and the Howell Color Guard unit lead off the parade followed up by all of the local Police, Fire, OEM and First Aid units showing off their rigs. Many local Scouting units, Shriner Clowns on their mini bikes and go carts, and church organization and local business floats help celebrate the day. Many of our state, county and local officials are in attendance either marching or riding in cool historic cars and trucks. Closed out by Cowboy Larry and his Horse team. I know I have missed many of the other fantastic marching units, because there is just too many to list, but we thank them all for attending and making this such a great event. This event is made possible because of generous donations by our local businesses and borough professionals, there is never a cost to the taxpayer for the event.
PLEASE tell all of your family coming in to either participate or just partake, the Parade Route is CLOSED TO ALL TRAFFIC from 12:00 noon until 2:00 or until the parade has fully completed it's way back to Academy Street and Southard Avenue. State Police will be ticketing any vehicles on the parade route not in the parade during those times!
     It's a great time to remember and thank those who served for all of us and celebrate the freedoms they have afforded us. Please continue to thank those who are still serving who continue to afford the same for all Americans today!
We hope to see you all there!

EFFECTIVE JANUARY 1, 2020 - Shared Service with Howell

To all Residents and Business Owners in Farmingdale Borough:

Recently, the Farmingdale Borough Council and the Howell Township Council entered into a shared services agreement to utilize the Howell Fire Bureau staff to perform the required annual fire prevention inspections in the Borough of Farmingdale.  This agreement takes effect on January 1, 2020.

How does this affect the resident?  The only noticeable change to the resident will be the Howell Fire Bureau personnel in town.  If a resident decides to sell their home, a smoke alarm inspection certificate is required by State Law.  In the past, the local Fire Bureau would do this inspection.  With this change, the Howell Fire Bureau is now the responsible agency to perform this inspection.  Application for this inspection must be submitted in person at the Howell Fire Bureau office where the Staff will schedule an inspection date with you as you pay the required fees for the inspection. Application forms for this inspection are available on the Howell Township website under the forms section or copy and paste the below link.

Fees for the Smoke Alarm Inspection were set by Farmingdale Borough Ordinance and are all based on how many business days until your closing:

More than 10 days = $50.

Less than 10 more than 4 = $90.

Less than 4 days = $161.

For the commercial business:  Your inspection will take place annually at approximately the same time each year.  You will be required by ordinance to pay an inspection fee based on the square foot of your space used.  Your invoice will be mailed to you prior to your inspection.  All fees will be now be paid directly to the Howell Fire Bureau.  Our offices are open and available for questions and concerns Monday thru Friday 8:30 am until 4:30 pm.

Fees for businesses were set by Farmingdale Ordinance earlier this year and will be attached to your annual invoice.

If you have any questions, please contact the Howell Fire Bureau office at 732-938-4500 ext. 2900 or by email at
