The Danvers Department of Public Works Water Division is scheduled to flush hydrants starting Friday, September 15, through Friday, September 29. Flushing will occur between the hours of 7:00 AM to 7:00 PM. Flushing is critical to the overall maintenance of the water distribution system.
During flushing in your area, you may experience water discoloration or sediment. If possible, limit the use of water during this period. Once the flushing in your area has completed, if your water is not clear please run your cold water from a tub spigot or sink faucet located at the highest point in your home for 15 minutes or until the water clears up. If your water does not clear up, wait 30 minutes and try again. Please be advised that if you run water from a fixture that is serviced by an in-home water filter, the filter may clog and require cleaning/replacement.
If you inadvertently draw discolored water into your home, staining of clothes in a washing machine or staining of plumbing fixtures may occur. The town will provide free rust removal products upon request.
Please contact the Water Division at 978-762-0235 with any questions or concerns.
