The Trenton Water Works will conduct a unidirectional flushing of the water main in the area surrounded by Federal City Road, Lawrence Pennington Road, Pennington Road and I-95 starting from September 3rd through September 17th between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. The activity may cause discolored water in varying degrees in your neighborhood. Every effort will be made to keep inconvenience to the user at a minimum.

If you notice discolored water, the Trenton Water Works suggests that you flush your water system by turning on the cold water and let it run 3-5 minutes. If water is still not clear, then you should wait an hour, then repeat the flushing procedure. It would be preferable to do laundry and/or wash dishes between the hours of 6 p.m. and 7 a.m.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Trenton Water Works by calling (609) 989-3212.
