Hydrant Flushing April 2019

 

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

Starting Monday April 15th through Friday the 19th during the hours of 9 am to 3 pm

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.
