Fire Hydrant Flushing to Begin March 27

Please be advised that the Fair Lawn Water Department will begin a hydrant-flushing program on March 27, 2016. This program is part of an ongoing maintenance program to insure the delivery of the highest quality water and is required by the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection.

To minimize the inconvenience to our customers, this work will be done only between the hours of 11:00 p.m. and 5:30 a.m. The flushing program will last for a period of approximately six (6) weeks.

Your water service will not be interrupted. During this work residents may experience some discoloration of their water. This is expected and a normal occurrence when existing water mains are disturbed. If you experience this, caution should be used in washing white clothes; however, the discoloration poses no health hazard and the water is safe for consumption. Just allow the water to run from your tap until it clears.

If you have any questions regarding this program, please call 201-794-5304 or 201-794-5326 during normal working hours or 201-794-5374 at all other times.

We apologize for the inconvenience and thank you for your cooperation.
