Hydrant Flushing Begins on Monday!
Over the next 3 weeks as this work is completed, residents may notice a temporary period of water discoloration. Although the water may be discolored, it is safe to drink. Until the water runs clear, however, you may wish to avoid washing clothes, especially white fabrics.
If any rust stains appear on wet laundry, the clothes should not be dried, and you should contact 311 for a free bottle of rust remover.
Updated information on affected streets and dates of flushing can be found on the City’s website, www.somervillema.gov.
