The Keyport Water Department will commence HYDRANT FLUSHING of the water distribution
system on Monday, May 2, 2016 between the hours of 9:00 PM and 2:00 AM. The work is scheduled
to be completed by Friday, May 13, 2016. Regular flushing is required by the State of New Jersey and is
performed in order to improve the aesthetic quality of the water by removing any accumulated non-harmful
sediment in the water mains. The quality of water will not be affected, although some temporary
discoloration or reduction in pressure may occur briefly in the area being
flushed. Residents are advised to CHECK THE WATER before washing clothing.
Thank you for your cooperation.
Scott Hicks, Superintendent
Keyport Public Works Department
