    June 3, 2022
    The following is information provided by Easton Suburban Water Authority regarding their Flushing Program:

    Dear Water Customer:

    On the night of Wednesday, June 15, 2022, Easton Suburban Water Authority will begin its annual water distribution system flushing program in the area of Palmer Township that is south of Route 22. Flushing will be performed predominantly between the hours of 7:00 A.M. and 5:00 P.M. Occasionally, there will be times when the flushing must occur at night. This flushing will be performed between the hours of approximately 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M. Although it will take approximately two weeks to complete the program in this area, customers should only be affected for one or two days. During the Flushing Program, customers may experience low water pressure, discolored water, and may be without water for short periods of time. The Authority regrets any inconveniences that its customers may experience due to the Flushing Program. If you are currently under a physician’s care with a medical condition that may be affected by this program, please notify the Authority. The Authority’s flushing schedule can be found on the Authority’s website,, as well as by calling our main phone number, 610-258-7181 and selecting the flushing option. The schedule will be updated each business day at 4:00 PM, detailing the streets to be flushed on the next business day. Please listen carefully, as multiple areas may be flushed at the same time. Thank you,

    Easton Suburban Water Authority

    Please Don't Flush Rags

    May 6, 2022
    When it comes to "rags" and the sewer system, they don't mix! They are small, but mightly and can cause very costly damage to wastewater equipment. The consequences of the damages and repairs will be reflected in your sewer rates. In the wastewater industry the term "rags" is used to describe wipes, towels, shop rags, industrial rags, cleaning wipes, etc.; basically, materials tougher than toilet paper, that are not able to break down in the sewer system. Please make sure you are only using toilet paper when you are flushing!
