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.

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.
