Somerville Hydrant Flushing Programs Begins Monday 9/30


The City of Somerville Water Department is conducting a Flushing Program throughout the water distribution system.   The City will be flushing hydrants and operating gate valves to maintain the distribution system.  


This work will take place weekly between the hours of 11:00PM Monday through 7:00AM Tuesday. It is

anticipated that work in this area will take place over a three (3) week period.


Residents may experience a short period of water discoloration during the flushing and shortly thereafter.  

Though the water may be discolored, it is safe to drink. 


Until the water runs clear, it is advisable to avoid washing clothes, especially white fabrics.  If any rust stains appear on wet laundry, the clothes should not be dried, and the homeowner should contact the Water
