The Centerville-Osterville-Marstons Mills Water Department will begin flushing its water mains (weather permitting) from:
March 9, 2023 to Mid- June 2023
Flushing will take place between the hours of 8:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M., Monday through Friday, starting in Centerville and then in sections throughout the District. The water mains will be flushed by systematically opening fire hydrants for a brief period.
During the flushing operation, customers may notice a temporary discoloration of their water and fluctuations in water pressure. We encourage customers to refrain from drawing water while flushing is being conducted in their neighborhoods to avoid potential staining of laundry, appliances and plumbing fixtures. The Department advises our customers to set aside water for drinking and cooking purposes and after flushing in your area to check the water clarity before use. Running the cold water only for a few minutes should clear the lines.
The flushing program serves two important functions. First, it minimizes the build-up of mineral and other sediments, that over time can affect water quality and water flows through the pipe. Secondly, it allows the Centerville-Osterville-Marstons Mills Water Department to verify the fire hydrants are working properly and available for fire protection.
The Department wishes to apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and appreciates your support in our attempt to supply clean, safe drinking water.
