Spring Hydrant Flushing

Beginning Monday, April 24, 2023, the Pompton Lakes Borough Municipal Utilities Authority will conduct its Spring Hydrant Flushing Program.  The hydrant flushing will be performed during the hours of 12:00 AM and 6:00 AM in order to cause the least inconvenience to our customers.

Public Law 2021, Chapter 183 (NJ Bill A5343/S3398) requires all community water systems (CWS) to perform an initial service line inventory and make the findings publicly available. To update our records, we’re asking for your help to identify what type of material your service is by conducting a visual inspection and completing an online Water Service Inspection Form.

Please be advised that Authority employees will be leaving Service Line Survey Door Hangers as notice and will be available to perform the survey if assistance is needed.

Enter the link into your cellphone, tablet, or computer browser to complete the survey on your own, or contact of office to schedule an appointment with a technician.
