PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT
October 4, 2017 to November 10, 2017
The Sturbridge Water Department will be flushing water mains to remove sediments that can cause brown and black water complaints.
The flushing will take place from Wednesday October 4, 2017 until Friday November 10, 2017. We will start on the West end of Town. The flushing will begin at 8 AM and finish by 5 PM Monday through Friday each day. All customers should be aware that water main flushing can cause some temporary water discoloration throughout the community. The discoloration comes from small particles of iron and manganese that are removed from the pipe walls. The discoloration is temporary and typically clears in four to five hours.
It is recommended that residents check the water before use, especially prior to doing laundry. DO NOT TRY TO BLEACH STAINED CLOTHES, AS THIS WILL SET THE STAIN PERMANENTLY.
Customers can call the Water Department at 508-347-2513 or at Shane.Moody@veolia.com for further assistance
