The Andover Department of Public Works will conduct a Distribution System Flushing Program in Town starting on October 4th, 2021, and will end on or before December 3rd. 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. Please View the listing of streets and neighborhoods that may be affected. This list will be updated periodically throughout the project.
Distribution system flushing will take place Monday – Friday between the hours of 8:00 AM and 4:30 PM. Please check the Town’s website periodically for updates as well as the listing of streets and neighborhoods that may be affected, last updated on October 18th.
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 PM or 978-623-8860 after hours.
