NJ American Water Annual Spring Cleaning & Hydrant Flushing
NJ American Water will begin their spring cleaning of water mains in Princeton on April 5, 2018. This will continue through April 20. 2018. While the water mains are being cleaned it is common for customers to notice periods of low water pressure or discolored water. If you experience water discoloration taking the following steps is encouraged:
- Draw water for cooking prior to the flushing period
- Store a large bottle of water in your refrigerator for drinking
- Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher
- If water pressure or volume seems low after flushing has been completed check your faucet screens for trapped particles
