Paterson Hydrant Flushing & Valve Testing

2024 Annual Flushing Notice – Paterson

Passaic Valley Water Commission (PVWC) began its annual hydrant flushing throughout its service area on Monday, April 15, 2024. Flushing will take place between 8:00 am and 10:00 pm on weekdays (except holidays) and is anticipated to be completed by November.

The purpose of this exercise is to ensure adequate water supply by removing accumulated sediment and maintaining the proper flow of water. During the flushing process, customers may experience temporary discoloration of their tap water and/or reduced water pressure. This discoloration is caused by sediment and minerals that have accumulated in the water mains over time. PVWC advises residents to refrain from doing laundry during the flushing period and to wait until the water runs clear before drinking or cooking with it. After flushing, customers experiencing discoloration are encouraged run their cold taps until the water is clear.
