Water Main Flushing in Zone 6

Posted on April 24, 2017

The Water Division will be conducting its annual flushing program of the water distribution system beginning on Monday, March 27.  Flushing is done annually in the spring to remove sediment which has settled out and collected in the system during the past year.

We expect flushing to take approximately 4 weeks to complete.  A combination of work day hours (7am – 3pm) and evening hours (3pm – 7pm) will be used to complete the program.  There will also be few days in different parts of Town that will require early morning flushing (3 am – 7am) due to potential traffic volume.  On Saturdays flushing will occur 5 am – 9 am.

The program will begin in the northwestern part of Town at the Middleton line, and will be flushed in a southeasterly direction finishing in the Danversport area. The Town has been divided up into 6 sections with the first section being between RT 62 and RT 114 from the Middleton line to the RT 95 corridor.

You may notice some discoloration of the water when first used.  Please run your cold water first for a few minutes to clear out any discoloration.  It should clear up on its own within 1 hour; any lasting problems should be reported to the Water Division at 978-762-0231.

A real-time map is available below and on social media to see where the flushing is occurring and how it is progressing.  Any questions about the program should be directed to the number mentioned above.

We thank you for your cooperation and apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
