My area was just flushed and I am experiencing low pressure or volume from my faucet, why?

Did you use water during your scheduled flushing time and was the water discolored? If so, the sediment in the discolored water may have clogged the screen (or aerator) in the faucet and it needs to be cleared.

If that is not the issue, then please contact Board of Public Utilities (BPU) Customer Service for assistance.
