MUA: Brown Water Is Due To Flushing Process

mua new building tlsMany have been wondering why their tap water was coming out brown this week. The MUA says, that is because the utility company is in the midst of performing their annual ‘Flushing Process’. The process, to ensure the maintenance of water quality, is being performed in phases, and the process is expected to be completed by the week’s end.

The MUA suggests that after 4:00 p.m. you let the water run through your tap for several minutes to clear the water.

The miscolored water says the MUA, is not harmful. TLS.

  1. Why can’t we all have MUA, New Jersey American Water rips us all off!! THe township could make money while every single resident would save. What better solution could there be!!!!?

  2. Nj American is in big dispute with Ocean Cty. Utilities Autority where our sewer is treated. They refuse to pay OCUA over $800,000 in past due $$$. Sad ,we paid NJ American for our sewer and they refuse to hand over our $$$ to OCUA. I believe that NJ water is owned by a German Co.. An eng, from OCUA told me that , NJ water puts very little $$$ back into the aging infrastructure that has many leaks in the antique manhole s and sewer piping. We end up paying more (more sewage to treat). Looks like NJ American is MILKING us to the MAX

  3. #8, I personally had issues with the water company, whom we all know to be arrogant and merciless. The first time was with my personal meter, and when I called the BPU and filed a complaint it was resolved within an hour.

    Thus encouraged, when the Mossad that I work in had problems with the water company twice in the ensuing four years, a call to the BPU resolved it very quickly.

    I think that the BPU is the only entity that the shmoes in the water company are afraid of.
