Water Division

Hydrant Flushing



The Town of Narragansett Water Division will be flushing fire hydrants located on the North End Water System service area supplied by SUEZ beginning approximately May 13, 2021 through May 28, 2021 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Our customers may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure.  If you experience dirty water while the flushing process is taking place turn off your water immediately, wait a short time to allow us to finish flushing your neighborhood, then run your cold-water faucet until the water clears.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.

This is a semi-annual procedure to remove organic material and sediment that accumulates in the water main and to check the operation of fire hydrants.  Any questions may be referred to the Narragansett Water Division at 782-0639.




Information

The Water Division is responsible for the complete operation and maintenance of the town’s water storage and delivery systems, including over 71 miles of pipe lines, over 300 hydrants, and three storage tanks with a combined capacity of two million gallons. We perform quarterly meter readings (forming the basis for water and sewer bills), as well as compile and validate the water roll for approximately 5,230 customers. 


The Water Division operates within the Water Enterprise Fund, which is solely supported by user fees and charges, with no property tax contribution.

“The Rhode Island Water Resources Board has published the results of their Annual Survey of Rhode Island Residential Water Rates for 2010. We are pleased to report that Narragansett offers the second lowest drinking water rates in the State for our customers! Coupled with the fact that we were the 2009 recipients of the “Best Tasting Water in RI” award, we are proud to continue to offer a first-class service at a very reasonable rate to our customers."
