2022 Seaside Park Lead Service Line Inventory

The NJDEP requires the Borough of Seaside Park to maintain a material inventory of all its service lines in its water system.  The Borough shares ownership of these service lines with the homeowner.  The Borough is responsible for the water line from the water main to the curb line.  Homewners are responsible for the water line from the curbline to the structure.  In an effort to help maintain this NJDEP requirement, we ask that you contact the Seaside Park Water Department at 732-793-1240 or email  if you know your service line material.   

Hydrant Flushing – Monday November 8th, 2021 to Friday November 12th, 2021

The Water Department will be conducting the semi-annual flushing of its water distribution system on Monday, November 8th through Friday, November 12th. Residents may notice a temporary discoloration of their water or a slight decrease in water pressure as a result of opening the hydrants.  Flushing the system twice per year improves the quality of the water and tests the fire hydrants for proper operation. If you have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 732-793-5100. We apologize for any inconvenience.

 Tips for saving water inside your home

Source: Handbook of Water Use and
Conservation, Amy Vickers

Bathroom use accounts for about 75 percent of the water used inside the home.

  • Check regularly for any leaks in your toilet, faucets and water hose bibs and fix them.
  • Install a low-flow showerhead.
  • Replace older, larger-use toilets with the newer higher efficiency toilets.
  • Take short showers and save the baths for special occasions.

About 8 percent of in-home water use takes place in the kitchen.

  • Wash only full loads in the dishwasher. An efficient dishwasher usually uses much less water than washing dishes by hand.
  • Install a low-flow faucet aerator, which can cut water use in half.
  • When buying a new dishwasher, consider purchasing a water-saving model. (New models use up to 25 percent less water than older ones.)

Around the house

  • Wash only full loads in the clothes washer. Washing small loads uses over twice as much water per pound of laundry.
  • When buying a new clothes washer, consider purchasing a water-saving model.
  • Insulate hot water pipes where possible to avoid long delays (and wasted water) while waiting for the water to “run hot.” When building a new home, keep the distance short between the hot water heater and showers and other places that hot water is used.
