Fall Hydrant Flushing Begins the Week of Monday October 7

The Westford Water Department will be flushing water mains in Nabnasset, Route 110 and Forge Village as part of our comprehensive maintenance program beginning the week of Monday October 7 and continuing until completed or as weather allows.  Flushing will be performed between the hours of 8:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.  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.    See below questions about discolored water.

Streets or neighborhoods to be flushed are listed each day at the Water department website.  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 concerns regarding the flushing program, please call the Water Department at 978-692-5529. We appreciate your patience while we continuously work to protect our water quality.
