NOTICE TO PASSAIC CUSTOMERS
The Passaic Valley Water Commission is committed to providing our customers with high quality water and service. As part of our on-going improvement program, we are cleaning, lining, testing and disinfecting approximately 18,400 linear feet of 6 and 8-inch diameter water mains along Sherman Street, Oak Street, Monroe Street, Madison Street, Tulip Street, Myrtle Avenue, Grove Street, Lucille Place, Martha Place, Leonard Place, Henry Street, Howe Avenue, Montgomery Street, Hammond Avenue, Gregory Avenue, and Garden Street. Work will begin on or around September 11th and will be completed by December 2017. Please note that parking and access may be restricted for limited times at these locations.
We will make every effort to maintain your normal water service at all times. If your property is connected to the water main being cleaned and lined, you will receive water service through a temporary main. Our contractor, J. Fletcher Creamer, will need access to the property in order to connect your water service to the temporary main. Please verify that all personnel have Contractor identification badges issued by PVWC before you allow them to enter your property.
Water service to all customers will be maintained throughout the project and will be safe for use. There may be, however, some unavoidable water discoloration and low pressure at any time during the project period. Customers are therefore cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur.
PLEASE WATCH YOUR STEP
Our Contractor must dig in the street in order to clean and line water mains and replace gate valves. Temporary mains will also be run along the curb. Please watch your step and ask your children not to play in the work areas.
INCONVENIENCE IS TEMPORARY – IMPROVEMENT IS PERMANENT
We understand that this project may cause some inconvenience. We will make every effort to minimize the disturbance and will work closely with local police and officials to reduce traffic problems.
IF YOU HAVE ANY CONCERNS
Please call our customer service number at (973) 340-4300 during regular working hours. During off hours and on the weekends, please call our contractor’s emergency contact number at 201-249-7181 or 201-488-9800.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation. These improvements will help us to continue to give you dependable water service.
