During the months of April and May, Medford Township will be flushing the water mains. Our annual flushing removes harmless particles that have built up in the pipes over time. The Township will be opening the hydrants to increase water flow and flush sediments from the pipes. Residents may experience a drop in pressure or discolored water. This is a normal part of the process.
During the flushing process, please avoid running tap water, using the washing machine or dishwasher. After flushing is complete, the Township advises residents to run the cold water and wait until the water at the tap runs clear, before doing laundry or running dishwasher.
If water pressure seems low after flushing is complete, check your faucet screens for trapped particles.
Thank you for your cooperation and patience in this matter.
The Division of Municipal Utilities - Department of Neighborhood Services - maintains Medford's sanitary sewer system and water distribution system. The Operations Center is located at the Township's Wastewater Treatment Facility located at 18 Fostertown Road.

**The Utilities Department is asking residents to refrain from flushing wet wipes. Even though the labels may say they are flushable, these cause problems in our sewer collection system and can bind our lift station pumps. They may also clog your residential plumbing pipes.
Other items that should be disposed of in the regular trash instead of a garbage disposal or flushing include fats, oils, greases, coffee grounds and egg shells.**
