CRANFORD, NJ – New Jersey American Water will flush Cranford’s fire hydrants between May 24 and May 29.

According to the NJ American Water website, the flushing cleanses the water flow system, clearing any minerals and deposits from the pipes.

“While flushing the system won’t interrupt your water service, when crews are working in your area, you may notice a temporary drop in water pressure or discolored water,” the website reads. “This is normal. If this happens, simply let your water run until it is clear.”

The website advises residents to avoid running tap water and using washing machines or dishwashers while crews are flushing the hydrants in their area. If discolored water occurs, residents should run the cold water for a few minutes until it clears. People in the area should check for discolored water before they use their washing machines or dishwashers.

“In some cases, slight discoloration might linger for a few hours,” the website reads. “This discoloration only affects the appearance of the water and does not affect water quality. No health hazards are associated with discolored water from hydrant flushing. If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.”
