WELCOME TO EVESHAM MUA
Due to a higher than usual volume of repairs on the water infrastructure this weekend as a result of the changing temperatures, as well as firefighting activities that took place, some residents may experience discolored water near the areas of high activity. Discolored water is not harmful, and is a result of sediment in the water system being stirred up when this type of disruption occurs. Usually, the discolored water will clear up after running your cold water taps for a short period of time. You may follow some suggestions in our “hints during hydrant flushing” section found here:
As always, if the above suggestions do not resolve the issue, please call the EMUA at (856) 983-1878. We apologize for any inconvenience.
The Authority was first established as the Evesham Sewerage Authority on April 7, 1955 and reorganized on March 3, 1959 as The Evesham Municipal Utilities Authority, by ordinance of the governing body of the Township of Evesham. Today, the Authority services over 18,000 equivalent dwelling units which represents 97% of the Township’s estimated 2010 population of 47,596.
