Dracut Water Supply District has begun it's seasonal flushing program on Monday, April 23, 2018 and will continue for approx. the next 5 weeks. The intent of the flushing program is to clean out the sediment that collects in water mains, to examine the areas that might have lower water pressure, and to inspect the fire hydrants for fire protection.

Flushing of hydrants will be in the following service area that includes Frost Road, Lakeview Avenue, Makos Road, Rock Road, Chard Road and all side streets in Tyngsboro.

During the flushing, you may experience temporary discoloration, lower pressure and sometimes air bubbles in the water. Please run the cold water tap for a while until the water is clear.

The flushing program is essential in maintaining our water system and providing higher water quality to you. Please contact us at 978 957-0441 if you have any questions about the flushing
