CEDAR GROVE, NJ - Cedar Grove will conduct its Fall Hydrant Flushing Program starting Monday, Oct. 16 through Thursday, Oct. 19.
The township will begin with hydrants in South End and proceed North. Flushing will be done between hours of 7 pm and Midnight.
Because it is difficult to pinpoint the exact neighborhood where flushing will occur at a given time, residents are advised to bathe before 7 pm and store sufficient water for their breakfast needs. Residents are also advised not to do laundry for 24 hours after their neighborhood hydrants have been flushed, as the water may discolor clothing.
Discoloration of water can be expected for 24-36 hours after flushing. The discolored water is not harmful, but residents should briefly run their faucets to clear discolored water.
