Water Main Flushing Notice

The Sandwich Water District will be flushing water mains (weather permitting)
beginning April 22, 2024.

Flushing will take place between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 4:00 P.M. Monday
through Friday. The water mains will be flushed systematically opening fire
hydrants for a brief period.

During the flushing operation, customers may notice a temporary discoloration of
their water and fluctuations in water pressure. We encourage customers to refrain
from drawing water while flushing is being conducted in their neighborhoods to
avoid potential staining of laundry, appliances and plumbing fixtures. The
District advises customers to set aside water for drinking and cooking purposes
and after flushing in your area to check the water clarity before use. Running the
cold water for a few minutes should clear the lines.

Water main flushing is part of a preventive maintenance program being
undertaken by the District to ensure that water quality is not being compromised.

A precise schedule of flushing operations is difficult to determine more than a day
or two in advance. If you wish to be notified before work will be done in your
area, please contact the Sandwich Water District at: (508) 888-2775.

We appreciate the cooperation of our customers and apologize for any
inconvenience.
