Hydrant Flushing Begins on Monday!

The City’s Water & Sewer Engineers will be conducting their annual hydrant flushing program beginning on May 6th in your neighborhood. Work will be done on Monday nights from 11:00pm – 7:00am on Tuesday mornings.

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.
