2020 Hydrant Flushing Program

On or about May 11, 2020 the Matawan Department of Public Works will be high-velocity flushing the water distribution system through fire hydrants. The hydrants will be opened between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 2:30 P.M., Monday through Friday.  Residents should anticipate the system flushing to continue throughout the summer.

While the hydrants are flowing customers can expect temporary water pressure fluctuations and discoloration:

  • Do not run water or use washing machines while fire hydrants are being opened in the area.
  • Open a cold water faucet and make sure the water is clear before doing laundry.
  • If water discoloration occurs, run the cold water faucet for a few minutes until it clears. In some cases, it may take a little longer.
  • Water discoloration only affects the appearance of the water and not the quality. No health hazards are associated with discolored water resulting from fire hydrant flushing.

Further information about the program can be obtained by contacting the watersuperintendent at (732) 290-2015, or via email at:john.applegate@matawanborough.com.
