Groton Water Department Seasonal Water Main Flushing
Groton Water Department will begin its annual flushing of the water distribution system Tuesday, April 15 thru Friday, April 25. All water main flushing occurs during daytime only. We anticipate the flushing program will take approximately two weeks to complete. You will experience discolored water during the flushing effort and we apologize for this inconvenience.
In the event that you experience a prolonged period of discolored water, run numerous cold water taps for 5 to 10 minutes or until it clears up.
This is the time to thoroughly flush your hot water tank.
