TOWN OF SHARON
HYDRANT FLUSHING AND MAINTENANCE
Hydrant flushing will be taking place in section 18 today (Monday, April 6, 2020). Please see maps in pdf format attached below.
Flushing is generally done in sequential order except when multiple sections are do
ne simultaneously. It is possible to still experience discolored water outside the flushing area due to valve closures used to facilitate our unidirectional flushing program.
The Town of Sharon will be continuing an ongoing hydrant flushing program beginning Wednesday March 11, 2020 through Friday June 12, 2020. The work will be scheduled Monday through Friday between the hours of 9:00 A.M. and 2:00 A.M. There will be some discoloration of water while this program is in process. This program is being carried out to maintain the water quality in Sharon. In case of rusty water, do not run your water while work is in progress. To clean your service, wait about two (2) hours after Water Division crews have left your area then run cold water from the faucet nearest your water meter. The two (2) hour wait allows any rusty water stirred up by the flushing to settle. As a precaution, you should check your water for discoloration prior to doing any laundry. However, should you have laundry stained by rusty water, wait until the water returns to normal and wash the load again with your regular soap, weak bleach and four (4) ounces of cream of tartar. This should clean the laundry.
