Sewer Maintenance Advisory for Wednesday, September 23 through Wednesday, November 25.
The North Plainfield Department of Public Works has scheduled cleaning of sewer mains within the highlighted areas along the central portions of the Borough (see map). This cleaning is not expected to affect sewer use, however in rare instances air may bubble and splash water in toilet bowls, particularly in basement facilities. Residents may therefore wish to keep their toilet lids closed when not in use as a precautionary measure against splashing.

The work will occur during the daytime, with hours varying between 7 AM and 4 PM.

Please contact the Department of Public Works with any concerns – 908-769-2914.

This cleaning procedure is necessary to keep our sewer system in good working order.
