On Monday, April 19, 2021, beginning at 8:00 a.m. contractor, Hydra Tech, will be replacing water valves on Wesleyan Terrace at the intersection of Knowlton Avenue. On Tuesday, April 20, 2021, beginning at 8:00 a.m. they will be replacing water valves at the intersection of Wesleyan Terrace and Wesleyan Street and at the intersection of Hascall Street and Wesleyan Street. Taft Street, Wesleyan Terrace, Wesleyan Street, Hascall Street, Knowlton Avenue, and Municipal Drive will not have water service between 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. on both days to allow the work to take place. Please follow the link below for a map of the area where water service will be interrupted.

This critical work is being done to allow the unidirectional flushing program to continue in this area and to minimize the impacted water service interruption area when system maintenance is needed in the future.

Residents in the vicinity of the impacted area may also have reduced pressure or discolored water due to the interruption in water service. If you experience discolored water after service is restored, please run the cold water in an outside faucet, or downstairs bathtub until it clears. 

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding as we continue to make improvements to our water distribution system to ensure reliability and good water quality. Please contact the Department of Public Works at 508-841-8502 or watersewer@shrewsburyma.gov with questions.
