MAPLEWOOD, NJ - New Jersey American Water will conduct routine flushing of its water distribution from Sunday, April 23, through Friday, April 28, according to an email sent to Maplewood residents.

The flushing is to ensure that residents, "continue to receive high-quality water service," and also allows New Jersey American Water "to monitor and maintain fire hydrants," stated the email.

New Jersey American Water stated that when crews are working, residents may notice reduced pressure or discolored water, and recommends if water is discolored, to "wait until it runs clear before using. This should typically take only a few minutes."
