South River puts water treatment plant back online

After nine months of repairs, the South River Department of Public Works has announced that the borough’s water treatment plant is being put back online.

As a result of the switchover, residents may experience discolored water.

Running cold water for several minutes as well as flushing toilets once or twice may clear up any discoloration in some cases.

If experiencing discolored water, avoid doing laundry until the color returns to normal.
