PARSIPPANYΒ β€” The Township of Parsippany-Troy Hills Water Department began its annual Hydrant Inspection and Flushing Program.

The work will be conducted during overnight hours, when water consumption is at a minimum, and is expected to conclude on or about Sunday, May 13. This program is essential to maintaining the water system which involves us systematically opening fire hydrants to increase water flows, therefore allowing us to flush any minerals and deposits from the water mains.

While flushing the system won’t interrupt your water service, when crews are working in your neighborhood you may notice a temporary drop in your water pressure or discolored water. This is normal and is not a health hazard. If this occurs, simply let your cold water tap run until it is clear.

Check for discolored water before using the washing machine or dishwasher. If water pressure or water volume seems low after flushing has been completed, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.

If you have any specific questions about the hydrant flushing in your area you may contact the Water Department at (973) 263-7099 Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
