Spring Flushing Program for the Nabnasset, Graniteville, Town Center, and Route 110 Areas

The Westford Water Department water main flushing program will begin on March 29, and should be completed by the end of May. Flushing will be conducted between the hours of 8am and 3pm, Monday through Friday. During flushing, pressure may be low and water discolored. If you experience discolored water, let the COLD water run for several minutes after flushing is completed for the day and discoloration should clear. Please avoid washing clothes during the dates and times of flushing.   If discoloration does not go away after 30 minutes or if pressure does not return to normal call the Water Department at 978-692-5529.

Service Line Insurance

Periodically our customers get calls from companies offering water service line insurance. We would like our customers to know that the Westford Water Department does not endorse any service line insurance product or company, and we recommend exercising due diligence before making a decision to purchase insurance. Before considering purchasing service line insurance you may want to check with your home insurance company-as some policies do offer some coverage for service line repairs or replacement.
