Post Date:09/20/2019 12:24 PM
Starting September 23rd, the DPW Water Division will be closing street valves and opening targeted hydrants to flush water mains from Arlington Center to Cambridge (see map). Hydrant Flushing takes place Monday – Saturday between the hours of 3:00 p.m. – 11:00 p.m. This procedure serves to maintain the Town’s water infrastructure and water quality. Hydrants will be opened, flushed, and valves will be checked. Abutters of the area may experience temporary service disruption or discolored (rusty) water. If you experience rusty water in your home, this is not an unsafe condition. It is advised that you run the faucets until you have clean water. Do not run your hot water or do laundry until your water is clear. If problems persist please contact DPW Dispatch at 781-316-3301.
