PA American Water - Routine Water Line Flushing

08/23/2021 by admin

PA AMERICAN WATER - Crews will begin routine flushing of the water distribution system in Wind Gap on Monday, August 23, 2021 through September 30, 2021.  Flushing will occur between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.  Flushing allows PA American Water to test and maintain fire hydrants.  When crews are working in Wind Gap you may notice reduced pressure or discolored water.  If your water is discolored, run the cold water taps only, at the lowest level of the house for about 3 to 5 minutes until the water runs clear.  If discolored water occurs, please also refrain from doing laundry during that time. 

In keeping with American Water's focus on safety for both customers and employees, please do not approach the crew members while they work.

PA American Water apologizes for any inconvenience and thanks you for your patience and understanding during the period while necessary maintenance of the water system is completed.
