Fall Flushing

-A A +A
2017 Fall Flushing begins October 16th

Dracut Water Supply District will perform it's seasonal  flushing program starting Monday, October 16, 2017, between 8 a.m. and 8 p.m for approx. 5 weeks.  The intent of the flushing program is to clean out the sediment that collects in the water mains, to examine the areas that might have lower water pressure, and to inspect the fire hydrants for fire protection.   

Flushing of hydrants will be in the Dracut service area that includes Nashua Road, Lakeview Avenue, Mammoth Road area including all side streets.

Customers should avoid using the water when hydrants are being flushed.  This will minimize the dirty water being drawn into the building.  After the flushing, you may experience temporary discoloration, lower pressure and sometimes air bubbles in the water.  Please run the cold water tap for a while until the water is clear. 

The flushing program is essential in maintaining our water system and providing higher water quality to you.  Please contact us at 978 957-0441 if you have any questions about the flushing program.
