The Groveland Water and Sewer Department has begun its spring flushing program, which it conducts every year to eliminate the buildup of naturally occurring iron and manganese buildup in underground pipes. Residents should be mindful that flushing in their neighborhoods could have an impact on water pressure and clarity, and that discoloration can be reduced by running a high flow faucet.
Residents are advised against doing laundry until the discoloration has dissipated.

You could experience low water pressure, even NO water during this time. Your water could be cloudy and discolored for a few hours, during and after flushing. Using a high flow faucet (ie Tub, utility sink or outside sill cock), that is close to where your water service enters the home, run COLD water clear before use. This protocol should help mitigate any discolored water from running throughout your plumbing system and into your hot water tank. This schedule is a guide and subject to change, watch our website for any updates.
