Here’s What’s Happening. . .
FALL WATER HYDRANT FLUSHING – NEXT WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 29, 2014
Fall flushing of fire hydrants will be conducted next Wednesday, October 29th starting at 8:00 a.m. and continuing until all flushing has been completed. Residents may notice lower water pressure and a slight discoloration of water as the flushing is performed in your area. The discoloration is not harmful and will clear up if you allow the water to run for a few extra minutes.
Flushing is done twice a year in order to remove any sediment that may accumulate in low flow areas of the water distribution system. The operation maintains the overall excellent water quality in our distribution system and ensures that each fire hydrant operates properly.
BRUSH COLLECTION TO END NEXT FRIDAY
Brush collection is currently underway in the Borough, and will continue until next Friday, October 31st. Residents are urged to take advantage of these final days of brush collection as the next brush pickup will be in April, 2015.
Limbs should be cut into lengths of 4 ft. or less and placed at the curb for collection.
Please do not take any brush to the Public Works yard on Center Street.
