BRICK – The Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority will be flushing its distribution system beginning on or about September 18, 2019 and continuing through November 2019.
Distribution system flushing is a normal water system maintenance exercise and will help in our effort to continue to provide the best quality water to our customers. During this time, the Brick Township Municipal Utilities Authority will temporarily modify the disinfection process of water treatment from chloramine residuals to free chlorine.
Free chlorine is commonly used in public water supplies as a disinfectant. As a result of the temporary change in disinfection type, customers may experience a more noticeable chlorine taste and odor in their tap. In addition, you may experience low water pressure and some discoloration of water. This is normal and no cause for concern.
During flushing Brick Utilities employees will be working along roadways. If you are driving in areas where flushing is taking place, please drive cautiously for the safety of yourself and other employees. Thank you in advance for your cooperation and patience while we complete this important annual maintenance program.
If you have any questions please call Brick Utilities at 732-458-7000 ext. 5389.
