Boston Water and Sewer Commission will commence Water Main Flushing in the Dorchester and Roxbury areas starting October 17, 2023 through November 22, 2023.
The purpose of the Water Main Flushing Program is to improve drinking water quality and water pressure for residents and businesses of Boston.
Water Main flushing will take place between the hours of 10:00 P.M. and 6:00 A.M. The flushing process may cause discolored water and a reduction in pressure. The discoloration of the water will be temporary and is not harmful. If the condition persists, please contact BWSC's 24 Hour Service at (617) 989-7000. BWSC appreciates your patience as we work to improve the quality of drinking water we will provide to the residents and businesses of Boston.
If you have any questions, contact BWSC's Night Operations Manager at (617) 989-7000 or visit our website @ www.bwsc.org for weekly updates on the project.
