5/2/2016 - HYDRANT FLUSHING

KEYPORT RESIDENTS

The Keyport Water Department will commence HYDRANT FLUSHING of the water distribution

system on Monday, May 2, 2016 between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM. The work is scheduled

to be completed by Friday, May 13, 2016. Regular flushing is required by the State of New Jersey and is

performed in order to improve the aesthetic quality of the water by removing any accumulated non-harmful

sediment in the water mains. The quality of water will not be affected, although some temporary

discoloration or reduction in pressure may occur briefly in the area being

flushed. Residents are advised to CHECK THE WATER before washing clothing.

Thank you for your cooperation.

Scott Hicks, Superintendent

Keyport Public Works Department
