Hydrant flushing went down the drain in Natick during spring 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic, but is back for the fall.
The Department of Public Works Water Division will be conducting its Hydrant Flushing Program throughout town through October and November. The work will be done nightly Monday through Thursday. Flushing of water mains is conducted to improve water quality and ensure proper valve and hydrant operation. The work may cause some discoloration/sediment in residents’ water. If affected, residents are directed to run the cold water faucet (preferably tub or outside spigot) until the water runs clear.
Please contact 508-647-6557 with questions or concerns.
