Collingswood periodically conducts hydrant flushing in the Borough. Water main flushing is designed to remove natural minerals like iron and calcium that sometimes collect in the bottom of water mains. This operation may cause a temporary discoloration in your water supply. By allowing your water to run for a short period of time, the problem should clear itself. Please be assured, although the water may be discolored, it is safe for human use.
If discoloration persists for a period of time call the Water Department at 856-854-2332.
For more information see the Water Department page here.
