Routine flushing of the water distribution system goes thru Sat., June 9 

2018 Hydrant Water Flushing Schedule

For the next several months, New Jersey American Water will be flushing the water distribution system in Cherry Hill. The work, which started this week, will run through June 9. Flushing ensures that residents continue to receive high quality water and also allows NJ American Water to monitor and maintain fire hydrants. When crews are working in your area, you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water. If your water is discolored, let it run until it runs clear before using. They should only take a few minutes.
