Hydrant Flushing

Beginning at about 9:00 PM on Wednesday, April 19th, the Town's Department of Public Works will systematically flush all fire hydrants. This may cause some slight discoloration during the flushing hours and during the day on Thursday, April 20th.
Please run your cold water tap until the water is clear. You may wish to draw enough water before Wednesday night to accommodate your early morning consumption (coffee, etc.) since the average house system contains less than 100 gallons of water. It also would be advisable to refrain from doing laundry during flushing hours and on Thursday morning.
Be assured that the water received, though possibly discolored, is still fully treated and potable.
Please bear with us during this important and necessary purging of the water system. Thank you!
