Flushing started Tuesday, April 11, 2017.

The Acton Water District began its spring water main flushing program on Tuesday, April 11, 2017.  We will be flushing water mains southwest of Route 2 and west of Route 27/Main St (West Acton).  Discolored water and periods of low pressure may be experienced on, or in the general vicinity of, any of the streets being flushed.  Road signs will be placed in the vicinity of areas being flushed prior to initiating flushing. 

     Flushing will occur between the hours of 8 AM and 8 PM Monday - Thursday.  No flushing will occur on Monday April 17th, due to the Patriots’ Day holiday.  Since at any time during this period customers may experience discolored water, it is advisable to draw and store some drinking water prior to flushing.  Any customers experiencing discolored water should not launder light-colored clothing, or run their dishwashers, as the Iron in the water may cause staining.

     We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.  This process is necessary for periodic maintenance of water quality and to clean mineral sediment from the pipes.
