West Caldwell Water Department Hydrant Flushing Program

The West Caldwell Water Department conducts a semi-annual flushing of all fire hydrants in the spring and in the fall in the Township. The purpose of this program is to remove iron sediment from the water mains in order to alleviate discoloration and reduction of flow, resulting in improved water quality.

Our Fall 2019 flushing program will begin on Monday, September 16, 2019.  We will post our progress daily.  If we are flushing in your area, we ask that you simply run your water for a few moments prior to doing any laundry to confirm there is no discoloration.
