Waterline flushing schedule for area water systems

The Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works will begin its semi-annual program for flushing waterlines in Mystic Harbour, West Ocean City Area, Newark, Riddle Farm, Nantucket Point, Edgewater Acres, Oyster Harbor, Ocean Reef, Deer Point, Whispering Woods, and Bayside Landings in May.
The purpose of this program is to remove any accumulated sediment from the lines and to ensure the hydrants are operational. Below are the proposed dates for the flushing of the waterlines, and please be advised that these dates are subject to change. 

•    Week of May 2 -  Riddle Farm and Bayside Landings
•    Week of May 9 and 16 -  Mystic Harbour including Bay Vista, Ocean Reef, Deer Point, Oyster Harbor, Whispering Woods and West Ocean City
•    Week of May 16 -  Newark, Nantucket Point and Edgewater Acres

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.
