Friday, September 14, 2012

The Merrimack Village District will be flushing mainlines and hydrants in the following areas from 8:30 a.m.-3 p.m. Monday, Sept. 17, through Friday, Sept. 21:

Abbey Road, Amherst Road, Baboosic Lake Road, Bates Road, Brek Drive, Charles Road, Coles Rock Road, Cramer Hill Road, Dahl Road, Dena Avenue, Elizabeth Drive, Erik Street, Everest Drive, Four Winds Road, Fox Meadow Lane, Greenleaf Street, Hawthorne Road, Kyle Road, Majestic Lane, Maryann Lane, McQuestion Road, Naticook Road, Old Kings Road, Peaslee Road, Penny Lane, Queens Way, Rainier Court, Regal Drive, Riley Lane, Rimmon Court, Royal Court, Rushmore Court, Savannah Way, Scott Drive, Seaverns Bridge Road, Spaulding Drive and Springfield Circle.

Streets in the vicinity of the above-mentioned areas may also be affected.

Flushing is done to maintain water quality throughout our distribution system.

This program involves opening flushing valves to create increased water flows, which dislodge and clean out naturally occurring sedimentation in the pipelines.

It may cause minor flooding of streets and slight discoloration of water and/or a short period of low pressure. Areas surrounding these streets may also experience water discoloration. The Merrimack Village District would like to reassure customers that the water is safe to drink and any discoloration should clear up in two-three hours.

Residential customers with special water needs for medical reasons are urged to call the district office at 424-9241, ext. 100, to be notified in advance of flushing in their area.
