The Connecticut Water Company will be flushing its water mains in several northern Connecticut communities, including the town of Suffield. Routine flushing helps to maintain water quality by scouring the inside of the water mains and allows the Company to assess the condition of fire hydrants.
Flushing operations will get underway in Suffield between the evening hours of 7 PM and 11 PM from October 1 through October 4.
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.
Connecticut Water’s water main flushing schedule is available on its Web site. Water main flushing announcements are also posted to Facebook. Connecticut Water’s web site is located at www.ctwater.com and there are to Facebook and Twitter on the Home page.
