As part of the Borough’s routine maintenance of its water distribution system, the North Caldwell Water Department will inspect fire hydrants and flush water mains between 7:00pm and 11:00pm from approximately April 6, 2021 through May 6, 2021.  Flushing water mains involves the systematic opening of fire hydrants and allowing them to flow for several minutes.  Residents may experience a slight discoloration of their water following flushing.  If this occurs, it is suggested that residents run their water until it clears.  The discoloration is temporary and presents no ill health effect, but may stain laundry.  Residents are therefore advised to be sure water is clear before washing clothes.  Please direct any questions or concerns to (973) 228-6410, x-132.

April 14-23:
neighborhoods along Grandview Avenue
Mountain Avenue, Wind Ridge, Roosevelt areas


Please be advised that the North Caldwell Police Department will conduct a DWI Checkpoint within the Borough on or about May 13, 2021.  This program has been fully funded by the State of New Jersey.  Please contact the NCPD at (973) 226-0800 with any questions.
