WATER MAIN FLUSHING IN QUIDNESSETT & POST ROAD AREAS BEGINS ON APRIL 20, 2017

The North Kingstown Water Department will begin flushing hydrants in the QUIDNESSETT & POST ROAD Areas. Because of the nature of the work, it is not possible to predetermine how long flushing of any given area of will take. Water Department crews will be flushing from 7:30 AM to 3:30 PM daily.

This work is being done as part of the Water Department’s semi-annual water main and fire

hydrant preventive maintenance program.    Flushing removes sediment that normally
accumulates in water pipes that could produce bacteria and discoloration if not removed.

Flushing is an important component of North Kingstown’s system maintenance plan.

Customers should be aware of the potential for dirty and discolored water while mains are being flushed. This is a temporary situation. The water may also be cloudy due to air entrapped in the water. All water system users are cautioned to check the water for clarity before use. Should you experience dirty water, simply wait for a period of time and it will clear up. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause our customers and appreciate your understanding. Anyone having any questions can call the NKWD at 268-1521 or 268-1522.
