Valve Maintenance and Flushing Program
PVWC periodically flushes its systems to ensure that the fire hydrants are in good working order and to maintain the quality of our water. Occasionally, water main flushing can result in discolored water. These conditions are not harmful and do not last very long. Customers are encouraged to avoid using washing machines, dishwashers or other water using devices during flushing operations. Briefly running the cold water tap may help to clear discolored water. If discolored water or low pressure persists after several hours please call PVWC Customer Service at 973-340-4300.
Lead Service Line Replacements
PVWC has a program for LSLR from main to curb.
Water Main Transmission Repairs
PVWC has ongoing Capital Improvement Projects to clean & line water main transmission lines and to replace lines where deemed appropriate. Due to the extensive inventory of existing lines that need repair or replacement, these Capital Projects are planned, undertaken and completed within the constraints of available time and resources.
For additional information in the regard of PVWC’s programs, contact our customer service department at 973-340-4300.
