SUEZ Fire Hydrant Flushing




Dear Neighbor:

Every spring, SUEZ tests the water mains and fire hydrants in our distribution system to clear buildup of naturally occurring minerals and ensure proper water flow.  While the minerals are not harmful to health, they can affect water clarity.

Beginning June 22, 2020, SUEZ crews will be testing water mains and fire hydrants throughout the City of Rahway’s service area.  The project is expected to last for approximately three weeks.

Our crews will be working throughout the day, starting June 22, between the hours of 8:30AM to 3:30 PM, Monday through Friday. There will be no noise during the flushing process.

While crews are working on the flushing project, you may experience a temporary drop in water pressure or have discolored water.

If you should experience any discoloration, we recommend that you open all faucets and run the water until it clears before drinking, washing clothes or using dishwashers.

We realize that you may be inconvenienced while the work is conducted. We kindly ask for your patience and support as our crews work to complete this project as quickly and safely as possible.

For your convenience we have attached a tentative schedule below highlighting scheduled work areas. If you should have any questions regarding the project, please contact us at 1-877-303-2435.

Thank you.
