Rowley Water Department Announces Fall Flushing Schedule

ROWLEY — The Rowley Water Department announces that it will begin its fall flushing program later this month.

Beginning Tuesday, Oct. 22, the department will flush fire hydrants on all dead end streets in town as part of its ongoing program to improve water quality. Flushing will take place from 7 p.m. to midnight from Oct. 22-24.

Customers should note that they may experience some discoloration to their water as a result of flushing, which is conducted in order to remove naturally occurring sediment from underground pipes. Any discoloration will clear in a day or two, and residents can run their water to expedite that process. Customers are advised to avoid doing laundry until water is clear, and to avoid using bleach to remove any flushing related stains because it will make the stains permanent.

Rowley Water will try to provide 48 hours notice as to when a particular street will be worked on. For additional information, questions or concerns, please call RWD customer service: 978-948-2640.
