Water Main Flushing Program

As part of our ongoing maintenance program, Westford Water Department will be completing a comprehensive flushing of the water mains in the Northern, Nabnasset, and Graniteville sections of Town. Flushing will begin Monday April 14th 2014 and be completed by Friday June 13th, 2014. Flushing will be completed between the hours of 8:00 AM and 3:00 PM. This schedule is subject to change as weather conditions and length of flushing times may vary.

Flushing is completed to maintain water quality throughout the distribution system.

This program involves opening fire hydrants and flushing valves to create increased water flows which dislodge and clean out naturally occurring sedimentation in the pipelines.

Minor flooding of streets, periods of low pressure and/or periods you may be without water could occur.

Discolored water may result from the flushing so we recommend that you fill bottles with water for use during this time. If you experience colored water after the scheduled completion time, please run the cold water for 5 to 10 minutes to clear your service line. If your water does not clear, or if you have concerns regarding this flushing, please call the Water Department at 978-692-5529.

Please avoid washing clothes during the dates and times above.

Westford Water Department reassures customers the water is safe to drink and any discoloration should clear up after the water is run for a few minutes.

Residential Water Meter Replacement

Water meters need to be replaced every 15 years according to accepted performance standards.  When you receive a letter from the Water Department indicating the need to replace your meter, please contact the Water Department as soon as possible to schedule an appointment.  Replacement of the meter takes about 30 minutes and is performed at no charge to you.  With over 500 meters to change per year your cooperation is crucial for us to get this done!
