Update 11/20/2019: The Fall Water Distribution System Flushing Program has been completed. Flushing will resume in the spring of 2020.
The Andover Department of Public Works will conduct a Water Distribution System Flushing Program in the east area of Town from September 30, 2019, to November 29, 2019. The purpose of the Distribution System Flushing Program is to improve drinking water quality for residents and businesses.
Flushing will take in the eastern part of town, roughly bordered High Street to the north, Main Street and Sunset Rock Road to the west, North Reading to the south and North Andover to the east. View the listing of streets and neighborhoods that may be affected. Distribution system flushing will take place Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4 PM.
The flushing process may cause discolored water and a reduction in pressure. The discoloration of the water will be temporary. 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 978-623-8862 from 7 AM to 3:30 PM or 978-623-8860 after hours.
