As part of the Borough’s routine maintenance of its water distribution system, the North Caldwell Water Department will inspect fire hydrants and flush watermains between 7:00pm and 11:00pm from approximately September 9, 2020 through October 19, 2020.  Flushing watermains involves the systematic opening of fire hydrants and allowing them to flow for several minutes.  Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their water following flushing.  If this occurs, it is suggested that residents run their water until it clears.  The discoloration is temporary and presents no ill health effect, but may stain laundry.  Residents are therefore advised to be sure water is clear before washing clothes.
