Fall Hydrant Flushing Program

Cedar Grove will conduct its Fall Hydrant Flushing Program from Monday, October 25th through Thursday, October 28.

The flushing will begin with hydrants in the South End of town and proceed North. Flushing will be done between the hours of 7:00pm and 12:00am (midnight)

Because it is difficult to pinpoint the exact neighborhood where flushing will occur at a given time, residents are advised to bathe before 7:00pm and store sufficient water for their breakfast needs. Residents are also advised not to do laundry for 24 hours after their neighborhood hydrants have been flushed, as the water may discolor clothing. 

Discoloration of water can be expected for 24-36 hours after flushing. The discolored water is not harmful, but residents should briefly run their faucets to clear the discolored water.
