Starting October 14th and continuing through October 25th, 2013, Devens Utilities will flush fire hydrants to maintain and improve water quality.
During the flushing, you may experience low water pressure and discolored, brownish tap water. You can clear the water by running the faucet until it is no longer discolored. If you notice that hydrant flushing is occurring in your area and/or if your water is discolored, do not wash laundry until the water becomes clear. Brown water poses no threat to your health, but it may have an unpleasant taste and you may wish to avoid drinking it.
Contact Jim Moore at 978-784-2931 with any questions.
