Newark to Begin Corrosion Control Treatment to Address Lead in Bloomfield’s Water System

 BLOOMFIELD, NJ -- On Tuesday, May 7, the City of Newark will implement new water treatment operations at the Valley Road Treatment Plant in Montclair. This represents a major commitment and capital infrastructure investment by the City of Newark to reduce lead levels throughout their water distribution system as well as those of their municipal customers such as Bloomfield, Belleville and Nutley.

Once the new treatment is operational, Bloomfield will proceed to perform hydrant flushing along the Township’s large diameter water mains to further introduce the corrosion control treatment into the distribution system. While this type of flushing is performed annually during nighttime hours, in order to coordinate proper introduction of the treatment, this year the flushing will occur during the day from 10:00am-3:00pm.

“Bloomfield purchases all its water from Newark Water supply.  This new treatment operation, we are told, will have a positive impact on Bloomfield’s drinking water quality,” said Mayor Michael Venezia. “We will continue to work with Newark Water to get the best possible quality of water for our residents.”

Hydrant flushing may result in discolored water or minor drops in water pressure. This situation normally resolves itself once the flushing is completed for that day. Anyone experiencing discolored water is advised to run their taps until the water turns clear. If the discolored water continues for more than two days, residents are encouraged to contact the Bloomfield Engineering Department at 973-680-4009.
