The Keyport Water Department will commence HYDRANT FLUSHING of the water distribution system on Monday, May 11, 2009 between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM. The work is scheduled to be completed by Friday, May 22, 2009. 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 remains.
The quality of the water will not be affected, although some temporary discoloration of 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, George Sappah, Superintendent,
Keyport Department of Public Works
