Hydrant flushing

The Town of Narragansett Water Division will be flushing fire hydrants in the North End Water System supplied by North Kingstown beginning July 7, 2020 through July 9, 2020 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  This is a regular maintenance procedure to remove sediment that accumulates in the water main and to check the operation of all fire hydrants.  Emergency flushing on July 1, 2020 was conducted to remove discolored water from our system as quickly as possible after North Kingstown had flushed their system and was providing clear water to us.  We need to perform additional flushing to remove remaining sediment from our system.  Customers may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure due to the flushing activities.  If you experience discolored water, wait to allow us to finish flushing your neighborhood then run your cold-water hose spigots and faucets until the water clears.  Please note that the water remaining in the system may still appear cloudy or milky due to aeration that occurred in the North Kingstown and Narragansett water systems during the water main breaks and flushing operations.  If your water appears cloudy or milky, the water is safe to drink and the air will clear out as you continue to use the water.  We apologize for the inconvenience due to these activities.  Thank you for your patience.  Any questions may be referred to the Narragansett Water Division at 782-0639.
