The Westford Water Department will conduct flushing of the
water mains in Westford as part of our comprehensive maintenance program. Flushing will occur between the hours of 8:00
am and 3:00 pm Monday through Friday starting Thursday November 1 and
continuing through early December. This
program involves opening fire hydrants 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. It
may cause discolored water and/or low pressure. Consequently, we recommend that you fill
bottles with water before flushing begins that day in your area. Also, we recommend that you avoid doing
laundry during flushing in your area. If you experience discolored water after the
scheduled flushing completion time, run your cold water
for 5 to 10 minutes to clear your service line.
If your water does not clear, or if you have concerns regarding the
flushing program please call the Water Department at 978-692-5529. We appreciate your patience while we work to
protect our water quality.
