Hydrant flushing may temporarily introduce discolored water into your residence during the work period. Please refrain from water related activities such as laundry and food preparation during this period of time. If you are experiencing discolored water, please run the Cold water only in a downstairs bathtub or outside faucet until clear, after the daily flushing is complete for the day. For any questions regarding this, please refer to the Town website www.shrewsburyma.gov/watersewer or contact the Water & Sewer D.P.W. Division office at 508-841-8506. Thank you in advance for you patience and understanding.
