If your water is a little gritty and sparse this week, donít fret. It's just the Department of Public Works flushing the town's hydrants.
The town periodically flushes hydrants to clear sediment from water mains and maintain water quality. Homeowners are advised to run cold water if internal plumbing needs to be cleaned out after the flushing.
The flushing program begins today in the West End. Southborough Center follows on Tuesday, Fayville on Wednesday, the South End on Thursday, and the town's northwest corner on Friday. The town is asking residents seeking more information to call 508-485-1210.
