HYDRANT FLUSHING AND TESTING
The Town of Norwood Department of Public Works will commence flushing and testing of fire hydrants beginning Tuesday, April 17 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:00 p.m.
Some discoloration of water may occur while hydrant flushing is in process. In the event that discoloration should occur, wait approximately two hours for disturbed sediments to settle then run cold water from the faucet nearest your water meter for five minutes.
As a precaution, residents are urged to check their water for discoloration prior to washing laundry. Should a load of laundry be stained by rusty water, contact the Public Works Department for recommended cleaning instructions.
For specific information on the location and time of hydrant flushing please visit the Department of Public Works at www.norwoodma.gov or contact the DPW at 781-762-1413.
