Level of Chlorine in Princeton water higher during flushing

Posted by wlpo on October 3, 2015

Don’t be surprised if you’re drinking water in Princeton has a little hint of chlorine.

In getting ready for water main flushing, the city has increased the level of chlorine in the water supply. John Eggers of the Princeton Water Department says the water may give off a bleach-like odor. You can keep a pitcher of water in the fridge for drinking since the chlorine will go away after a few minutes.

Water main flushing starts Monday and should last around two weeks. The mains will be flushed during the day from 7 until 3.

While the mains are being flushed, you may have lower pressure or discolored water to go along with the chlorine smell.
