The Whitinsville Water Company will begin the annual flushing of water mains and hydrants the week of April 7, 2024. Flushing is expected to take about 6 weeks and should be done during the week of May 19, 2024. Flushing will start in the southwestern portion of Northbridge and move generally northeast through Town. Some flushing will be done during the day, but most will be 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 every 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 is normal and 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. If you have any questions, please contact our office at 508-234-7358.
