Spring Hydrant Flushing Lowell Water Utility

picture for newsflash

Lowell Water Utility will be performing yearly hydrant flushing in the Belvidere section of the city. Please be advised during the flushing of hydrants, residents may experience a drop in water pressure, as well as some discoloration of the water.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our residents. However, this is a very important system maintenance procedure that is conducted each Spring/Summer. The flushing program allows the water mains to be cleaned and the hydrants to be checked for proper operation. 

Although the water is safe to use during this time, residents should refrain from doing laundry when water is discolored. Also, please avoid running the hot water, as sediments can accumulate in your water heater. Following hydrant flushing in your area, all residents should run the cold water in the bathtub, if applicable, or the sink until water runs clear before returning to normal use. Please contact the Lowell Water Utility at (978) 674-4242 with any questions or concerns you may have. Additional information can be found on our website listed below
