Residents who have lawn sprinkler systems should have their systems turned off, and winterized before the freezing weather arrives. This will eliminate damage to your system and help prevent water loss due to leaks. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.
Our Water Division will be flushing fire hydrants starting Monday, March 30, 2020, during the hours of 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and continuing for approximately four (4) weeks. This start date will be pending based on weather conditions. During this period, you may experience some discoloration of water; however, let us assure you that the discoloration is not harmful and will clear within a few hours. Your cooperation during this time will be greatly appreciated
* If you see anyone utilizing a fire hydrant, please contact the Public Works Main Office at 609-239-5909, or the Police Department at 609-386-2019. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated. *
All residents are asked to check their Sewer Curb Lids to be sure the lids are secured and in no way cracked or broken. This will help alleviate any debris from entering into your sewer line and causing possible damage. If you are experiencing trouble with your sewer line, please contact the Public Works Office at 239-5909. If the problem occurs in the evening or weekends call 609-386-2019.
