The Town of Braintree’s Department of Public Works is currently in the process of flushing the water main lines throughout town and anticipates completing the work by October 31. Flushing will be performed Monday thru Thursday evenings from 8:00 PM until 12:00 AM.
Signs will be posted on the MAIN STREETS where the flushing will occur. You may experience discolored water during this period and we ask for your patience and understanding. There should be a minimal effect on the water distribution system.
We strongly suggest that you refrain from doing laundry during these hours (8pm-12 midnight Monday thru Thursday) and always check to ensure that your water is running clear before resuming laundry activity. We advise you to test your water faucet and be sure the water is running clear and then let your washing machine cycle run one time without a load of laundry in it to prevent the possibility of iron stains.
The Town of Braintree will not be responsible for damages to laundry due to maintenance work on the water distribution system. Thank you for your cooperation during this important process. If you have any questions, please call the Water Department Monday-Friday 8:30 am and 4:30 pm at 781-794-8097.
