HYDRANT FLUSHING NOTICE
Beginning Sunday, October 15, 2017
As part of our ongoing effort to improve water quality, the Water Division will conduct fire hydrant flushing, beginning on Sunday October 15, 2017. Flushing will occur in the area of Concord Road north to the Lincoln border. Flushing is anticipated to last approximately 1 week.
Fire Hydrant Flushing will be performed at night between the hours of 10:00pm and 5:00am Sunday – Thursday to minimize the impact to our customers. Some customers may experience discolored or “rusty” looking water. The discolored water is caused by naturally occurring iron minerals that disturbed during the flushing process. These non-health threatening minerals may cause staining of laundry and plumbing fixtures.
If you have any questions, please contact the DPW office at 508-358-3672.
Effective immediately, The Water Division is ending the restrictions placed on outdoor water usage.
The Massachusetts Drought Task Force reports that all drought indicators currently show normal or mostly normal conditions in all drought regions. As a result, the Wayland Water Division is ending water usage restrictions, effective immediately.
State agencies continue to intensely monitor and assess the drought situation and environmental and agricultural impacts.
The state asks the public to be mindful of the amount of water they are using, and to eliminate or greatly reduce outdoor water use to ensure essential needs such as drinking water, fire protection, and crop hydration are being met.
