December 6, 2021  5:15PM Update: Contractor, Hydra Tech, has finished unidirectional flushing for the day and will continue in Zone 12 on Tuesday, December 7th. Due to the flushing, residents in the identified area as well as those in the vicinity of the project may experience brief periods of reduced pressure, no water, or discolored water.  Please follow the link below for a map of the flushing areas. Since the fall of 2019, unidirectional flushing has been completed in Zones 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, and 11 with only Zone 12 remaining to complete the entire town. 

Flushing will begin around 8:00AM on Tuesday, December 7th and be finished around 4:00PM. It is difficult to estimate how the work will progress each day so the list below may be optimistic but is provided to better inform everyone in the area that may be flushed. Daily updates will be provided.
