On Monday, April 9th, 2018, the Merrimac Water Department will begin flushing fire hydrants. Flushing will continue thru April 24th, 2018 and will be conducted between the hours of 8am and 2pm. Please be advised that you may experience a drop in water pressure as well as some discoloration of the water during this process. The discoloration of the water is only temporary and does not indicate a problem with the water. If your water does become discolored, turn on an outside faucet to clear the water line before doing any laundry or cleaning. The Water Department will continue to monitor the water quality during this period to ensure that the water remains safe to drink. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but flushing is an important part of our system maintenance. Please contact the water Department at 978-346-8407 with any questions or concerns you may have./DocumentCenter/View/1167
