Water Main Flushing
Published: May 5, 2017

The Greentown Water Department will be flushing water mains June12-30 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 backwash into the water system during the flushing period.  Residents may want to keep bottled water available for drinking and cooking, however, town water is safe to drink and use during this time.  Residents may want to check for water discoloration before bathing and doing laundry.

The town apologizes for any inconvenience to their customers.
