The Southbridge Water Department will start its semi-annual hydrant flushing program on Sunday, September 29, 2019 at approximately 9:00pm and continue during overnight hours for approximately 6-8 weeks between the hours of 9:00pm and 5:00am. Flushing will start in Westville area and continue easterly throughout the Town.
The procedure will include the cleaning of the reservoir intake screens, flushing accumulated sediments from the water mains and testing the operation of each hydrant.
The Department requests that during this period customers check their water before washing clothes. Customers may also get accumulated sediments in their house laterals and experience some discolored water. This will clear after a brief run of the water. Please contact the Southbridge Water Dept. at 508-764-3207 if you have any questions or comments.
