PUBLISHED: | UPDATED:

The town of Ayer Department of Public Works will begin the semi-annual flushing program of the town’s water mains the week of April 24, 2006, and will continue for approximately four weeks. The flushing will take place during weekdays between the hours of 3 and 11 p.m. Flushing will be discontinued during the hours of 5 to 7 p.m. in an attempt to keep residential pressure loss to a minimum during peak usage time. During flushing you may experience reduced water pressure and some discoloration of your water. The discoloration should subsided within 24 hours. If you are still experiencing problems after this 24-hour period, please call (978) 772-8242.

The town’s flushing program is considered mandatory maintenance and will be conducted as efficiently as possible under the current water restrictions. This maintenance program allows us to continue to provide the residents with water that as aesthetically appealing as possible.
