Hydrant flushing will begin on April 17th. We plan to follow the normal route which is posted online at flushing.topsfieldpublicworks.org
Flushing removes sediment from the water mains, identifies hydrants in need of repair and checks system fire flows. Customers will have rust colored or black water while the water mains are flushed and for a period afterwards. The work will be conducted on weeknights from 9 PM until 1 AM to minimize the disruption. We apologize for the inconvenience.
May 17th Update: The remainder of the hydrant flushing program has been postponed until May 24th.
June 7th Update: Hydrant flushing is completed. The next round will be done in 2024.
