Water Main Break - Bayview

***If your trash, yard waste or recycling was not picked up today - Waste Management will be back on Monday to get it due to the crews working on the water main break that were blocking the road! Sorry for any inconvenience.***
We have a water main break on Bayview. Water will be turned off at approximately 8:30 a.m. Crews will remain on site until the repair has been completed.  Once the repair has been made run only the cold water until it runs clear and you no longer hear any "air gaps" in the line.  This will have to be done all all faucets and shower heads. We apologize for any inconvenience and we appreciate your patience while the repairs are underway.


On Thursday, July 20, 2017 - The Township will begin fire hydrant flow testing around the island.  Staff from the DPS will be assisting the Charles E. Raines Company and FTCH.  This information will be used to update the Township's water reliability study and also to help prioritize future projects for the water distribution system.  Residents may experience any of the following conditions:  Low water pressure, brown, rusty-colored water or cloudy-like water. Run the cold water only until it clears up.  Residents should refrain from washing white clothes from 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. or until the testing has been completed.   Testing is anticipated to be completed next week.
