HYDRANT FLUSHING:
During the months of October and November 2020, the Sea Isle City Water Department will be flushing-out the water distribution system through the fire hydrants and exercising water valves throughout town. Semi-annual hydrant flushing is required to ensure that hydrants and the water distribution systems are functioning properly and can provide the proper drinking water quality (thus providing adequate water flow when needed). This is also a requirement for the Water Quality Accountability Act.  If a hydrant is being flushed near your home or business, we encourage you to avoid using washing machines, dishwashers or other water using devices during flushing operations. Residents can expect very little disruption in their water service - if any.  However, low water pressure and possible water discoloration may occur.  In the event of discoloration, simply allow water to run from the tap for a short while until clear. These conditions are not harmful and are usually short term. For additional info, phone 609-263-6000 (ext. 11) or email: dteefyjr@seaislecitynj.us.
 

COVID-19 MESSAGE FROM THE WATER & SEWER DEPARTMENT:
Flush Wisely -- Due to the Coronavirus, we are all using more antibacterial wipes and cleaning supplies than usual. Please be aware that disinfecting wipes, baby wipes, paper towels, and paper napkins are NOT FLUSHABLE and should be thrown in the trash after being used. Even those products marked “flushable” are not. Flushing these items down the toilet can clog sewer pumps and cause sewer mains to back-up. They can also create problems for home septic systems. So, please do not flush cleansing wipes, paper towels or napkins down the toilet. Thank you!
