The Seaside Heights Department of Public Works will be flushing borough fire hydrants next week, October 20th – October 24th, between 10:00 PM and 6:00 AM. This work is necessary to ensure the proper operation of the hydrants and to draw water through the water mains at a faster than normal rate to remove any iron sediment in the pipes. You may temporarily experience brown water and/or low water pressure. The condition is temporary and does not pose a health hazard. Run your cold water tap until it clears. During periods of discoloration postpone washing clothes and limit your use of hot water until the cold water clears. Furthermore, we recommend that water users wait until the water has cleared before using the water for potable purposes. Thank you.
The Borough of Seaside Heights filed an application with the Green Acres Program for a combined grant/loan that would be used to acquire the Cranberry Inlet Marina properties that are located on the north bay front.

If you support the marina acquisition it is important that you please send your letter as soon as possible to “Borough of Seaside Heights, Attn: Borough Administrator, 901 Boulevard, Seaside Heights, NJ 08751.”
