This spring and into the summer months, New Jersey American Water will be cleaning its water
distribution system to help ensure that customers continue to receive high-quality water. During the company’s annual “Spring Cleaning” program, crews will be flushing out water mains to remove harmless particles that have built up in the pipes over time.

In the areas where Spring Cleaning is scheduled, New Jersey American Water will be opening fire
hydrants to increase water flows and “flush” sediment from its pipes. When hydrants are being flushed, customers may notice a drop in water pressure or may experience discolored water. This is a normal part of the process. New Jersey American Water advises customers to let their water run until it is clear.

The municipalities, start dates and end dates, where New Jersey American Water will be Spring Cleaning can be found at http://www.amwater.com/alerts/alert11012.html

If your town is not on the list, it means we will be flushing in the fall.

New Jersey American Water is offering its customers the following additional tips while mains are being flushed:

Avoid running your tap water, using the washing machine or dishwasher
while crews are flushing.

Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher. Wait until the
water runs clear at the tap before doing laundry or running the dishwasher. NOTE: If laundry 
becomes stained, do not put your laundry in the dryer. Rewash clothes immediately using 
detergent and add a rust remover. Most rust removers can also be used on stained fixtures.

In some cases, slight discoloration may linger for a few hours. This discoloration only affects 
the appearance of the water and does not affect water quality.

If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check faucet 
screens for trapped particles.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.
