SPRING HYDRANT FLUSHING - APRIL 16, 2019: Spring flushing of fire hydrants in Freehold Borough will be conducted on Tuesday, April 16, 2019, starting at 8:00 a.m. and continuing until all flushing has been completed. Residents may notice a slight discoloration of the water as the flushing is conducted in their area. The discoloration is not harmful and will clear up if you allow the water to run for a few extra minutes. The flushing is performed twice a year in order to remove any sediment that may accumulate in the low flow areas of the water system. This flushing operation maintains the overall excellent water quality in our distribution system and ensures that each fire hydrant operates properly.
