Fall Water Main Flushing Program - Week 2


The Hanover Water Department will continue its Fall Flushing Program the week of October 7, 2019.  Flushing activities will be conducted during day time hours between 9:00 am and 2:00 pm and during night time hours between 7:00 pm to 2:00 am.  Specific times for your neighborhood will be provided on a weekly basis with updates provided daily should we deviate from the weekly schedule.

Flushing is an essential maintenance function necessary to maintain water quality, improve the carrying capacity of pipes, and ensure the proper operation of distribution system components, such as hydrants and valves.

While conducting flushing operations in your neighborhood, you may experience discolored water or a small drop in water pressure. In the unlikely event your water service is interrupted or you are experiencing no water pressure please notify the DPW as soon as possible at 781-826-3189.  Should your water appear reddish, yellow or brown, do not be alarmed. It is recommended you do not use the water or do laundry for two hours after noticing this discoloration.  After you have waited, run your cold water tap (without the aerator screen) for five to ten minutes.  This should remove any sediment from inside your service.  If you continue to see discolored water, we ask that you call the Water Department at 781-826-3189 during normal business hours (8:00 am - 4:00 pm).  If you are calling outside of normal business hours please call the Hanover Communications Center at 781-826-2335 ext. 0.  We apologize for this inconvenience.
