FLUSHING OF WATER MAINS
The Whitinsville Water Company (WWC) will commence flushing of water mains and hydrants the week of May 7, 2018. Flushing will take place weeks of May 7th to June 16, 2018. Flushing will start in the western portion of Northbridge and Sutton and continue to move eastward through Town. Flushing is done during both day time and night time hours. Both the Whitinsville and Northbridge systems will be flushed.
The mains and hydrants are flushed each year to clean the water mains and maintain water quality as well as to ensure that the hydrants are working properly. During the flushing, you may notice discolored water or air in your water. The degree of discoloration and amount of air may vary by location. This should dissipate shortly after the flushing.
If discoloration is noticed, it is recommended to refrain from laundry (especially white clothes) until the water clears.
Thank you for your cooperation as we perform the necessary flushing program. We will use multiple media outlets (internet, TV, paper, R911) to provide notice as well as local signage. If you do have any questions, please contact our office at 508-234 -7358.
