PRINCETON — In preparation for the semi-annual water main flushing, the city of Princeton Water Department has increased chlorine levels to the water.
During this time, customers may notice a slightly stronger odor of chlorine. If customers find this odor objectionable for drinking, they may keep a pitcher of water in the refrigerator and the chlorine will dissipate after just a few minutes.
Citywide hydrant flushing will be done between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m. beginning Monday, Oct. 14, and continuing for approximately two weeks. During this time period, customers may experience a chlorine odor, cloudy or discolored water and brief periods of low water pressure.
