Mount Laurel MUA has begun hydrant flushing

Flushing will continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the program is completed.

The Mount Laurel Township Municipal Utilities Authority’s fire hydrant flushing program is now underway. Flushing will continue 24 hours a day, seven days a week until the program is completed.

According to officials, flushing hydrants is an important element in the MUA’s continuing program to maintain the quality of water in the local distribution system.

Hydrant flushing may cause temporary loss of pressure and temporary discoloration of water for several hours after work is completed. Once flushing is completed in your area, please allow your cold water to run for several minutes if you experience discoloration. Avoid doing the laundry until water has cleared. All other conditions are expected to return to normal once the program is completed.

If you have any questions call the Mt. Laurel MUA’s Customer Service Department at (856) 234-0062 or visit their website at mltmua.com. To view a full hydrant flushing schedule visit the MUA’s Facebook at facebook.com/mountlaurelmua.
