The Town of Maynard Department of Public Works will begin annual hydrant flushing starting the week of June 12, 2017. Hydrant flushing is done to remove sediment from the pipes to order to maintain water clarity and quality in the distribution system. The Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection encourages all public water supplies to complete hydrant flushing.
Hydrant flushing is part of the water system’s preventative maintenance program. Flushing helps to remove sediment from the distribution system which assists in maintaining water quality and clarity. Flushing also allows the Department of Public Works to test the hydrants for adequate flow and pressure, identify leaks in the distribution system and inspect gate valves.
While flushing hydrants in your neighborhood you may experience temporary discoloration of water in your home. High velocity flows during flushing scour sediment from inside the water mains and distribution system. While most of the sediment is flushed from the pipes, a small amount will remain suspended in the water and my cause the temporary discoloration.
Once hydrant flushing is done in your area, please make sure that both your hot and cold water are running clear. The Department of Public Works recommends running the hot and cold water faucets in your home for five to ten minutes after flushing is completed in your area. It is also recommended to change the water filter if you have a whole house filtration system installed in your home. Please note that discolored water may stain light colored laundry. There are a number of products available that can be added to your laundry to prevent stains.
If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Department of Public Works at 978-897-1317.

After the storm, avoid parking in the street. Stay off roads to allow plowing operations to proceed smoothly. Help dig out fire hydrants and storm drains in your neighborhood. Be aware of children playing in the streets, particularly climbing on or running out from behind large snowdrifts. Parents should remind their children to be aware of plowing operations and traffic. Clear exhaust vents from Direct Vent Gas Furnace Systems to avoid carbon monoxide poisoning. Use care around downed power lines. Assume a down wire is a live wire. As always, be sure to check in frequently on neighbors, especially the elderly.
