You may have noticed your water has been running yellowish brown yesterday and today. Pennichuck Water is flushing the water mains as part of their maintenance program. Unfortunately, we did not receive notice that this was going to occur.
The current schedule in our area is today through Friday between the hours of 8:30 am to 4:00 pm.
Pennichuck states the following in their message to residents: Discolored water may result from the flushing so we recommend that you fill bottles with water for use during this time. If you experience colored water after the scheduled completion time, please run the cold water for 5 to 10 minutes to clear your service line. If your water does not clear up, or if you have concerns regarding flushing, please call Customer Service at 800-553-5191.
Please avoid washing clothes during the dates and times detailed in your system.
Pennichuck would like to reassure its customers that the water is safe to drink and any discoloration should clear up after the water is run for a few minutes.
