Hydrant flow testing will be performed throughout the Township today. The testing is required by the ISO (Insurance Services Office) in order to maintain our current Fire Insurance Protection Classification. The Nutley Water Department, working along with the Nutley Fire Department, is committed to quality fire hydrant maintenance which ensures adequate water flow at proper pressure for the protection of life and property from fire.
Water may become discolored or cloudy during this process, allow the cold‐water tap to flow for a few minutes until the water runs clear. We apologize for any inconvenience the testing may cause. We are working together to protect the safety of the public, make improvements, and properly maintain the water distribution system throughout the Township.
For the safety of our personnel, we remind motorists to drive slowly and use caution if you are driving in an area where the hydrant flushing is occurring. We thank you in advance for your patience.
If you have any questions, please call the Dominic Ferry, Nutley Licensed Water Operator, at 973-284-4984.
