The Andover Department of Public Works will conduct a Distribution System Flushing Program in the west area of Town from October 19th to December 11th. The purpose of the Distribution System Flushing Program is to improve drinking water quality for residents and businesses.
Flushing will take place in the western area of Town roughly bordered by Lowell Street, Beacon Street, North Street, and River Road. View the listing of streets and neighborhoods below that may be affected. Distribution system flushing will take place Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 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.
