Hanover: Water Main Flushing On Tuesday

Hanover will be conducting water main flushing on Tuesday.

Town officials say the Water Division of the DPW will be performing water main flushing from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The streets that will be affected by this action include: Broadway, Saddle Ln., Cheryl Ln., Karen Rd., Clapp Rd., Bardin St., Sproul Rd., Laurie Ln., Willow Rd., Beech Tree Rd., Elijah’s Path, Trailside Ln., and Meadow Drive.

Residents may experience discolored water or a small drop in water pressure while the hydrants are open in their neighborhood.

Town officials say that should water appear reddish, yellow or brown, there is no need for alarm. However, it is recommended that water shouldn’t be used or laundry done for two hours after noticing this discoloration. After that it is recommended that residents run the cold water tap (without the aerator screen) for five to ten minutes and that should remove any sediment.

If residents continue to see discolored water or find water service is interrupted or experience no water pressure they are advised to call the Water Department at 781-826-3189.

Those calling outside of normal business hours are being advised to call the Hanover Communications Center at 781-826-2335 x 0.
