Hydrant Flushing to Begin in May

Dover Township will be begin flushing hydrants in the month of  May. During this time you may experience sputtering faucets and cloudy/dirty water. This is due to air that has entered the line and the stirring up of sediment that has coated the mains. This is normal; to alleviate the problem, let your faucet run for 3 to 5 minutes. If the problem persists, please contact our office at 717-292-3634.
