[ARCHIVED] Fall Water Main Flushing Begins Oct. 16

Fall 2023 Water Main Flushing

During the spring and fall seasons when residents are busy working on their lawns, CPW’s Water & Sewer Division is busy flushing our 130+ miles of water main. Flushing is routinely conducted during the spring and fall when the demand for water tends to be at its lowest and cold weather and potential freezing is not an issue.

Water mains are flushed for several reasons. Flushing allows hydrants to be used periodically and inspected for maintenance or replacement needs. It also provides an opportunity for routine exercising of water main valves and for testing to be to done to determine if water flow and pressure are sufficient.

The fall flushing program begins on Monday, Oct. 16 - Oct. 20 and continues Oct. 23 - 27.  It is important to remember that flushing can cause discoloration in areas of Town not directly being flushed, and that the street listings published only indicate the general areas being worked in.
