Alert: PAWC Flushing Hydrants

PAWC has had high level discussions regarding the performance of a targeted hydrant flushing program while under a drought watch.  Limited hydrant flushing in Mt. Pocono will be performed for this week November 14 thru the 18th commencing at 8 p.m. until midnight each night.


The Flushing Program is to maintain high levels of water quality that we have experienced since their efforts in the Spring.


Residents may experience discolored water during the actual flushing.  PAWC believes that the temporary system disturbances should be localized and of short duration.  Residents should run their water until clear.


Mr. Smidhum of PAWC has advised the Borough that notifications by phone went out to all Residents
