Starting April 29, 2019, the East Orange Water Department will commence its Annual Hydrant Flushing program. The flushing will take place Monday-Thursday, 7:30pm - 11:30pm, until completed. During this time, residents in the area may experience cloudy/brownish water.  Please refrain from washing clothes for the sediment in the water will cause staining.  After 11:30pm, run the cold water in your home at the lowest floor, e.g. the basement, until the water clears. 

Weather permitting, the flushing schedule is as follows:

  • 3rd Ward: 4/29-5/1
  • 2nd Ward: 4/30-5/2
  • 4th Ward: 5/6-5/7
  • 1st Ward: 5/7-5/8
  • 5th Ward: 5/9-5/14

Please make the necessary preparations.  If you have any questions, please contact Customer Service at (973) 266-8869.
