Hydrant Flushing

Lowell Regional Water Utility will be performing yearly hydrant flushing in the Highlands section of the city.  Please be advised during the flushing of hydrants, residents may experience a drop in water pressure as well as some discoloration of the water during this process.   

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause for our residents.  However, this is a very important system maintenance procedure that is conducted each spring/summer.  The flushing program allows the pipes to be purposed and the hydrants are checked for proper operation. 

Although the water is safe to use during this time, Residents should refrain from doing laundry when water is discolored and avoid running hot water, as sediments can accumulate in the your water heater.  Following hydrant flushing in your area, you should run the cold water at a pencil width stream until water runs clear before returning to normal use.   

Please contact the Lowell Regional Water Utility at (978) 674-4242 with any questions or concerns you may have.
