Weston Municipal Utilities is scheduled to begin flushing water mains as part of its Unidirectional Flushing Program the week of May 8, 2023.
This systematic, high-velocity flushing program is being done to remove settled particles and clean buried water mains, thus keeping your water safe while improving its quality.
We want to make sure you are aware of this program and what you can expect. As flushing occurs in your neighborhood your water may be discolored for a short period of time and could stain laundry. Water pressure may also be reduced.
If possible, do not use your water while flushing is happening. If you must, first run cold water until it is clear to remove any particles from your system. In addition, we advise running your cold water for a few minutes after the flushing in your neighborhood is completed.
The Unidirectional Flushing Program is expected to take approximately 10 weeks to complete. Crews will place signs in the area where they are working each day.
