Fire Hydrant Flushing Begins September 8

The Ventnor Water and Sewer Department, in conjunction with the Fire Department, will conduct flow testing of the city's fire hydrants and flushing of the systems water mains. 

The testing will begin at Jackson Avenue and proceed south to Fredericksburg Avenue, followed by Ventnor West, and finishing in Ventnor Heights. The testing will continue through Friday, October 16. 

Residents should be not alarmed if discoloration of tap water is noticed, as this condition is not harmful and will dissipate. Residents should avoid washing clothes, especially white loads, throughout the testing period or while water is discolored.

There may be periods where the water pressure will drop somewhat when testing and flushing are opened throughout the day. If you have any questions, please call Public Works at 609-823-7935.
