Flushing is done to maintain water quality throughout the 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 to three hours.

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