The Borough of Mt Arlington’s goal is to provide you with premier water service. As part of this commitment, we will be flushing fire hydrants and water mains starting the week of 8/7/17 (Excluding Landing Area and Seasons Glen). The result will improve your service, reliability and water quality.
Here are some important facts about this project:

Why Flush the Hydrants?
Periodically, you will see Public Works personnel releasing water from hydrants. Hydrant flushing is necessary to test the hydrants to make sure adequate flow and pressure is available. Flushing is also done to remove sediment from the pipes in order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution pipes.
Listed below are a few things to expect:
- If water is discolored let cold water faucet run for 5 minutes or until water runs clear
- Try to avoid washing cloths until water is clear, discolored water may stain clothing
