The Keyport Water Department will commence HYDRANT FLUSHING of the water distribution system on
Monday, October 10, 2016 between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM.
The work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, October 21, 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
