Bulk Water Station
The Town of St. John Water Department is pleased to announce the opening of our new Bulk Water Vending Station located at the Public Works Facility, 9350 Hack Street. Potable water may be purchased at the station for a cost of $5.00 per 1,000 gallons or any fraction thereof. The facility only accepts $5, $10 and $20 bills, and does not give change.
The Town has installed this station as a way to provide contractors with a safe, convenient, and legal way to obtain large quantities of water. For your convenience, the station will be open 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Fire Hydrant Flushing
A limited amount of “spot” hydrant flushing will occur throughout the Town as needed during the spring and summer months.
Since flushing the fire hydrants causes some disturbance in the water lines, as a safeguard, please allow your water to run a few seconds to make sure it is clear before washing clothes.
