On Thursday, December 9, 2021, at approximately 1:00PM, distribution system flow testing will be conducted near 625 Hartford Turnpike. This testing is necessary to gather important water flow data needed to design the fire suppression system for a building in the area and is expected to be completed in under one hour. Please refer to the attached map for more information. 

During the test, residents in the immediate and adjacent areas may experience brief periods of reduced pressure or discolored water. If you experience discolored water once the test is complete, please run the cold water in an outside faucet or a downstairs bathtub until it clears. 

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and thank you for your patience and cooperation. Please contact the Water and Sewer Division at 508-841-8502 or dpwsupport@shrewsburyma.gov with any questions.
