During the week of May 1-5, 2017, the Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works will conduct its semi-annual program for flushing waterlines in Newark, Riddle Farm, Edgewater Acres, and Assateague Point.
The purpose of this program is to remove any accumulated sediment from the lines and to ensure the hydrants are operational.
Please be aware that, even on dates the water lines in your section are not being flushed, it is still possible to experience discolored water. If area residents notice that their water becomes cloudy during these times, please allow the water to run for a few minutes until it becomes clear. For more information, please call the Water and Wastewater Division at (410) 641-5251.
