Annual Hydrant Flushing Maintenance Scheduled for May 13th-May 17th

The Harrisville Water Department and Pascoag Water Department will be performing annual maintenance flushing of hydrants on Monday May 13th through Friday May 17th between the hours of 9:00 AM and 3:00 PM.  This may cause some discoloration to the water in your service lines for a short period of time each day, as we remove sediment built up in the mains over the last year from all areas of the distribution system.   If you do experience discolored water, please run your water tap or taps until it clears-up.  Running the outside tap first, if you can, will help keep the discoloration from your internal plumbing.  Try not to run the hot water until the cold water lines are clear to keep sediment out of your hot water tank.  We apologize for the inconvenience while we perform this extremely important annual maintenance on our system.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience!
