As in every Spring, the Borough has transferred from American Water back to water drawn from its own wells. As part of this transfer, the Department of Public Works will be conducting a comprehensive flushing of the water system over the next several days starting tonight, Monday night. Flushing will occur between the hours of 8pm and 4am so as to minimize impact to your home.
Residents may expect to see a temporary discoloration of the water and/or a decrease of pressure when the flushing is occurring. We recommend that you avoid running your tap water, using the washing machine or dishwasher during the hours of 8pm to 4am. If you do experience any discoloration please run cold water through your taps until it runs clear.
As always, we thank you for your cooperation and patience. Please contact Belmar DPW with any questions at 732-681-0452.
