Spring 2020 Water Main Flushing




The Groton Water Department will begin its annual flushing of the water distribution system on Monday, April 6th thru Thursday, April 23rd, 2020. All water main flushing occurs during the daytime. We anticipate the flushing program will take approximately three weeks to complete. You will experience discolored water and Low pressure during the flushing effort and we apologize for this inconvenience. Please remain patient during this process as we conduct this important function to improve water quality in our water system.

In the event that you experience a prolonged period of discolored water, run all of your cold water taps only for 5 to 10 minutes or until it clears up.

This is the time to thoroughly flush your hot water tank.

The water distribution system flushing program is subject to change without notice and the dates listed below are approximate only!
