Hydrant Flushing Information


On Monday, April 24, 2023 the water division will begin flushing fire hydrants. Flushing will likely continue through Friday, May 5, 2023. Please be advised that you may experience a drop in water pressure as well as some discoloration of the water during this process. The discoloration of the water is only temporary and does not indicate a problem with the water.

If your water does become discolored run your cold water only for a period of time and it should clear up. A faucet or spigot closest to your meter is the best choice. High-flow faucets such as an outside spigot or a bathtub faucet are also good choices.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but flushing is an important part of our system maintenance. Please contact the DPW Office at 508-485-1210 with any questions or concerns.
