Water Department

Hydrant Flushing
The Water Department flushes hydrants two times a year. 
Flushing takes approximately 2 to 3 weeks to complete. The flushing is done to remove sediment from the water lines. Please check your water for discoloration before using and if discoloration is evident, run your cold water for a short period of time. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the Town of Marlborough Water Department.
