The Upton Water Department is planning to begin its spring hydrant flushing program on
Monday, May 18th. Please refer to the below calendar to see when we intend to be around your neighborhood. This schedule could alter by a day or so depending on weather and/or
unforeseen events that may arise for the Department.

Hydrant Flushing Calendar

During the flushing cycle, some residents may notice a discoloration of their water during
periods when flushing is done in or near their neighborhoods. Please check your water prior to
using. If you notice discoloration, the running of a faucet (outdoor is recommended) for a few
minutes prior to use should clear it up.
