Water Distribution System Flushing NoticeThe Department of Public Works will conduct a Distribution System Flushing Program in various areas of town from May 1st through July 31st to improve drinking water quality for residents and businesses. Distribution system flushing will take place on weekdays between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM.
The flushing process may cause discolored water and a reduction in pressure. The discoloration of the water will be temporary and is not harmful. To help alleviate the problem, please run the outside spigot(s) until the water clears. Prior to washing any clothing, please make sure to check your water. If the condition persists, please contact the Public Works Water Division at 978-623-8390.
It is anticipated that the following areas will experience discolored water / reduced pressure due to water main flushing starting on Thursday 5/21/15. Below is our estimation as to which areas will be affected.
Andover St – Dascomb Rd to Woburn St and all adjoining streets
Dale St area
