PRINCETON — The city of Princeton will conduct semi-annual water main flushing beginning Monday, Oct. 14 and lasting for approximately two weeks.
In preparation for this event, the water department has increased chlorine levels to the water. During this time residents may notice a slightly stronger odor of chlorine. Water for drinking may be kept in a pitcher in the refrigerator and the chlorine will dissipate after just a few minutes.
