Connecticut Water Company is flushing its water mains in the town of Enfield. Routine flushing helps to maintain water quality by scouring the inside of the water mains and allows the Company to assess the condition of fire hydrants.
Flushing operations are underway and will continue during the evening hours of 7 p.m. and 11 p.m. through September 18.
During water main flushing it is possible that some customers may experience discolored water and pressure fluctuations. The discolored water should clear within a few hours. While experiencing discolored water, customers should avoid using their washing machine, dishwasher, or other water using devices. Customers should call Connecticut Water at 1-800-286-5700 if discolored water persists for more than a few hours.
Connecticut Water’s water main flushing schedule is available on its Web site, www.ctwater.com, in the ‘Customer’ section.
