Hydrant Flushing Program - April through June

Flushing 2019

The Pepperell Water Division will begin its water main flushing program in April 2019 and will continue through June 2019 or until its completion.  Flushing will be conducted in the daytime, between the hours of 8 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Friday.

“Hydrant Flushing In Progress” signs will be posted in areas to be flushed before and during this flushing process.  The signs will move with the flushing process as we progress though town.  Residents in the general flushing area should expect to be affected.  The flushing process may cause temporary discolored water use while their neighborhood is being flushed to avoid drawing dirty looking, but perfectly safe water, into their homes.  Flushing may also cause minor flooding of streets.  If your water does not clear up after 3 p.m., please run your COLD water into your bath tub for up to 20 minutes.  Running water in the bath tub will avoid clogging the faucet aerators with sediment at your sinks.  If your tap water is not clear after 24 hours, please call the Water Division at 978-433-5591.  The Water Main Flushing Program is critical for maintenance of the water supply system and improvement of water quality.  It is also vital for maintenance of dependable flow for fire protection.
