SCHEDULE: WATER MAIN FLUSHING
Groton Water Department will begin its annual flushing of the water distribution system on Friday, October 10th thru Tuesday, October 21st, 2014. We anticipate the flushing program will take approximately two weeks to complete. You will experience discolored water and low pressure during the flushing effort and we apologize for this inconvenience.
In the event that you experience a prolonged period of discolored water, please, run numerous cold water taps for 5 to 10 minutes or until it clears up.
This is also the time to thoroughly flush your hot water tank as sediment may enter the tank during the flushing program.
