GROVELAND –Superintendent Colin Stokes announces that the Groveland Water and Sewer Department will begin its spring flushing program next week.
Water main flushing will begin during the week of April 6 and continue for approximately four weeks.
The water system undergoes flushing twice a year to help ensure sustained water quality and clarity and support the longevity of the system’s infrastructure.
“Thank you for your patience as we perform this process, which is essential to maintaining our infrastructure and ensuring continued high-quality water throughout town,” Superintendent Stokes said.
Please be reminded that the schedule may be subject to change.
The full flushing schedule, which is subject to change, is available here.
Residents should note when their street is scheduled for flushing. Areas undergoing flushing may experience low or no water pressure while flushing is ongoing. The water pressure should be restored when flushing is finished in that area, though residents may also notice that the water may have slight discoloration or a change in water clarity. This is due to the removal of sediment from the underground pipes during the flushing.
The discoloration should be gone after a short time, but residents can expedite the process by running water from a high-volume faucet — such as a bathtub — until water runs clear. Residents are encouraged to avoid doing laundry while flushing is occurring in their neighborhood in order to prevent damage to clothing.
