Harvey Cedars Department of Public Works will be conducting hydrant flushing Monday April 23rd through Thursday April 26th.

During this period, residents may experience low water pressure and/or water discoloration. This discoloration is harmless and does not affect the safety of water consumption; discoloration is caused by the stirring of sedimentation in the water main when hydrants are flushed. 

It is recommended that residents check their water for discoloration before showering or doing laundry. Residents experiencing discoloration should run their faucets for 10-15 minutes or until the water runs clear. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you in advance for your cooperation. Hydrant flushing is an important preventative maintenance activity to insure the integrity of the water systems in town. Hydrant flushing helps flush sediments from the mainline pipes, aids in determining weaknesses in the water system, and also verifies the proper operation of our fire hydrants and valves.
If you have any questions or should you notice a hydrant in need of repair, please contact Harvey Cedars DPW at 609-494-6905.
