The Whitinsville Water Company (WWC) will commence flushing of water mains and hydrants the week of April 24, 2017. Flushing will take place weeks of April 24th to May 26, 2017. Flushing will start in the western portion of Northbridge and Sutton and continue to move eastward through Town. Flushing is generally done during the night hours to minimize any inconvenience to customers. 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.
