The Connecticut Water Company is flushing its water mains in the town of Clinton from April 6 through April 17. Routine flushing helps to maintain water quality by scouring the inside of the water mains.
Water mains will be flushed between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. from April 6 through April 8. Water main flushing will also take place between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday from April 7 through April 17.
During water main flushing it is possible that some customers may experience discolored water and pressure fluctuations. The discolored water should clear within a few hours. While experiencing discolored water, customers should avoid using their washing machine, dishwasher, or other water using devices. Customers should call Connecticut Water at 1-800-286-5700 if discolored water persists for more than a few hours.
