Hydrant Flushing Photo

Project contractor, Hydra Tech, has concluded flushing for today, December 14th. They were able to finish unidirectional flushing on Bryant Avenue, Longfellow Road, Wadsworth Road, Browning Road, Tory Lane, and Tory Drive. Due to the precipitation and temperatures forecasted for next week, flushing has not been scheduled and will resume once the weather permits. Thank you for your patience during this project as we work to maintain and improve our water distribution system. 

Due to the flushing, residents in the identified area as well as those in the vicinity of the project may experience brief periods of discolored water. If you experience discolored water please run the cold water in a downstairs bathtub until it clears.

For additional information on the unidirectional flushing program please visit www.shrewsburyma.gov/864/Hydrant-Flushing

If you have any questions please contact the Water and Sewer Division at 508-841-8506.
