Groveland Water and Sewer Department to Begin Fall 2018 Flushing Program
Residents Should Visit Department’s Website for Most
GROVELAND — Superintendent Thomas Cusick reports that Groveland Water and Sewer Department will begin its fall flushing program later this month.
The department will begin flushing the pipes both during the day and at night starting Monday, Sept. 24.
For a complete flushing schedule, click here.
The Groveland Water and Sewer Department flushes the system twice yearly in order to remove naturally occurring buildups of iron and manganese that are present in groundwater, which the town uses as its sole water source.
Residents may experience low or even no water pressure while flushing is taking place on their streets. They may also notice that their home’s water is cloudy for a few hours during or after flushing. That cloudiness can be eliminated by using a high flow faucet until water runs clear.
The Groveland Water and Sewer Department will also notify residents of flushing via the town’s Code Red system. To sign up for the town of Groveland’s alerts, click here. Code Red also serves as the department’s primary notification tool for connecting with residents when the need arises.
The flushing schedule is a guide and subject to change. Residents should call the Water and Sewer Department or check the website for changes.
