LONGPORT – The Borough will begin testing fire hydrants Monday, April 6, and testing will continue through Friday, April 17.

Conducting the flow tests allow the Fire Department to ensure hydrants are in proper working order while at the same time provides for flushing of the water distribution system.

Residents should not be alarmed if a discoloration of tap water is noticed as this condition is not harmful and will dissipate in a few hours. Residents should
avoid doing wash, especially sheets and/or white loads, between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. throughout the testing period.

Call 609-823-2731, ext100 if you have any questions.
