Chester Water Authority is planning to flush all public fire hydrants in the CWA distribution system in East Marlborough Township beginning the week of August 10, 2014. They are planning on conducting the work between the hours of 9:00 pm and 5:00 a.m. Sunday night through Friday morning to minimize inconvenience to CWA customers. During this work, there could be brief periods when the water in the distribution system may become discolored. Distribution system water pressure may be depressed during the hydrant flushing activity.
With yard clean up on everyone's mind, you should all know that burning of brush and leaves is a very problematic issue. East Marlborough discourages burning; the Township prohibits the smoke and air pollution that travels onto neighbor's property. It is impossible to burn leaves at any time without creating dangerous and bothersome smoke. SECCRA Landfill, on Route 926, accepts bagged leaves, as well as branches and brush. The material must be transported in a covered vehicle. Please consider your neighbors and the environment before igniting any brush fires.
