[ARCHIVED] Water main flushing to begin Tuesday 5/8

hydrant flushing

The Whitman Department of Public Works will begin flushing the Town's water mains between the hours of 7PM and midnight starting on Tuesday May 8th and continuing until Friday May 25th.

When the water mains are flushed residents may experience a short period of discoloration in their water. This discoloration is not harmful and is due to sediment and iron that collects in the pipes throughout the year which is disturbed and removed by the flushing process.

If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to call the DPW office Mon - Fri between 8am - 4pm at 781-447-7630 or email us at

Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to maintain the Town's water supply system
