Spring Hydrant Flushing Begins the Week of Monday March 22

The Westford Water Department will begin flushing water mains as part of our comprehensive maintenance program beginning the week of Monday  March 22 and continuing until May. Flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  Areas to be flushed this spring are:   Town Center, south of Route 110, parts of Graniteville, and Greystone.  This program involves opening fire hydrants and valves to create increased water flows which dislodge and remove naturally occurring sediment in the water mains.  Flushing is critical to maintain water quality and main carrying capacity. 

As a result of the flushing process, residents in the immediate vicinity of the work may experience temporary discoloration of their water and/or low pressure.  This discoloration is harmless, and does not affect the safety of the water.  If you experience discolored water, run your cold water after flushing is completed for the day, until clear (may take up to 20 minutes).    Accordingly, we recommend you avoid doing laundry during flushing in your area.    

Streets or neighborhoods to be flushed are listed each day in the Hydrant Flushing Schedule .     Since weather and length of time necessary to flush each hydrant can vary considerably, we are generally unable to schedule flushing more than a day or two in advance.

If you have any questions about our flushing program please contact the Water Department at 978-692-5529.
