Event Date:

The Borough of Wallington Water Department will begin its hydrant-flushing program on Monday, July 16th. This program is part of an ongoing maintenance program to insure the delivery of the highest quality water. The work will be performed during regular working hours of 9:00a.m. To 3:00p.m. Monday through Friday. The flushing program will last till August 31st.  Flushing will start with the hydrants at the east end of Wallington near the border of Carlstadt and working our way to the north north/west doing approximately 15 to 20 fire hydrants daily.

Your water service may be interrupted for a short period and residents may experience some discoloration of their water. This is expected and a normal occurrence when existing water mains are disturbed. The discoloration poses no health hazard but residents should refrain from the consumption of the discolored water. If you experience discoloration, please allow the water to run from your cold-water tap until it clears. Do not use the hot water tap until water has cleared. Caution should be used when washing clothing. If you have any questions regarding this program, call (973) 777- 0318 during normal working hours.

The Borough of Wallington apologizes for any inconvenience during this time and requests your cooperation.
