Spotswood Spring Hydrant Flushing Schedule Set

Spring Cleaning, Home and Fire Safety

SPOTSWOOD, NJ - Spring cleaning isn't just for homes. The Spotswood Department of Public Works will begin conducting their annual spring hydrant flushing and testing, beginning on Monday, April 17. The process will continue through Friday, May 12. Hours for flushing will be between the 10 a.m. and two p.m. as well as 10 p.m. and 6 a.m.

During the flushing process, residents may notice a slight discoloration of the water as well as lower water pressure. According to the Water Department, the discoloration is harmless and will clear in a few hours following the flushing process. Running the cold water tap for a few minutes will assist in flushing the line. The SDPW advises residents to avoid doing laundry during flushing hours in their area.

The fire hydrants in the Manalapan Road area from the Immaculate Conception Church to the Helmetta border will be flushed from April 17 through April 21.

The conditions under which I read In Cold Blood for the first time were pretty weird, which was another ...
