Distribution System Flushing Notice

The Andover Department of Public Works will conduct a Distribution System Flushing Program in Town from October 2, 2017 to November 30, 2017. The purpose of the Distribution System Flushing Program is to improve drinking water quality for residents and businesses.

Flushing will take in the eastern part of town, roughly bordered High Street to the north, Main Street and Sunset Rock Road to the west, North Reading to the south and North Andover to the east. View the listing of streets and neighborhoods, updated October 10th, that may be affected.

Distribution system flushing will take place on weekdays between the hours of 8:30 AM and 4:00 PM.

The flushing process may cause discolored water and a reduction in pressure. The discoloration of the water will be temporary. To help alleviate the problem, please run the outside spigot(s) until the water clears. Prior to washing any clothing, please make sure to check your water.  If the condition persists, please contact the Public Works Water Division at 978-623-8862 from 7 AM to 3:30 PM or 978-623-8860 after hours.
