Bedford Road, Wood Heaven, Davis Road, Daniel Webster (Bedford Road North), Cathy Street, Ministerial Drive, Pearson Road, Constance Street, Davis Road, Page Road, Cabot Road, Vista Way, Level Street, Ravencroft, Round Tree Lane, Reeds Ferry Way, Bramber Lane. Streets in the vicinity may also be affected.

Flushing will occur between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.

Residential customers with special water needs for medical reasons are urged to call 424-9241, ext. 100.

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.

The Merrimack Village District reassures customers that the water is safe to drink and any discoloration should clear up in two to three hours.
