New Jersey American Water Begins “Spring Cleaning” Program

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 www.newjerseyamwater.com.

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.

New Jersey American Water, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Water (NYSE: AWK), is the largest investor-owned water utility in the state, providing high-quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to approximately 2.5 million people.
