On Wednesday, September 20th, the Wenonah Department of Public Works will be testing fire hydrants within the Borough from 9:00 AM through 2:00 PM.

During this testing process, water customers may experience some disturbances in their usual water service such as a short term decrease in water pressure or discolored water.  Although the water does not pose a health risk, it is recommended to avoid drinking the water until it runs clear from the tap.

  • Don’t prepare baby food or formula if the water is discolored.  Use bottled water or prepared food and formula.  You can also boil the water for 5 minutes to ensure safety.
  • Do not wash clothes if the water is discolored as mineral sediments in the water could possibly cause some discoloration to white/light colored clothing.
  • It is okay to use the water for showering, bathing and toilet flushing.
  • To clear up the discoloration, open several cold-water faucets in your home allowing new water to work its way into your pipes.
