The Greentown Water Department will be flushing water mains the weeks of June 10 and June 17 weather permitting
The Town flushes the mains through the fire hydrants which helps to ensure all valves are working properly. Flushing helps to avoid sediment and deposit buildups in the lines. There is a possibility that some deposits will back wash into the water system during the flushing period. Residents may want to keep bottled water on hand for drinking and cooking, however, town water is safe to drink and use even during this time. Also, residents might need to check for water discoloration before bathing and doing laundry.
The Town apologizes for any inconvenience to their customers.
