Why is my drinking water ‘dirty’?
‘Dirty’ water may be due to maintenance being performed on the mains. If you are experiencing ‘dirty’ water, open the cold water faucets on the lowest floor of the house and let the water run until it clears. If the condition persists, please call the Water department at 973-266-8869.
