Hydrant Flushing Begins 9/11

Hydrant flushing is performed twice a year to remove accumulated sediment that occurs in the pipes. Some sections of town have very old, unlined iron pipes that may produce extended times of rusty water till flushing has been completed in those areas.

When hydrant flushing is in progress, you may lose water temporarily, experience air in your pipes, or experience brown/rusty water. Water will be restored shortly after flushing is complete in your area. You may need to run your water briefly to clear the air or the rust from your pipes. If you have long-term issues please contact the Water Department at (978) 388-0853.
