FALL WATER MAIN FLUSHING TO START
Utilities Division crews will start Fall Flushing of the Town water mains on Thursday September 23, 2021, at 10:00 p.m. and continue through Saturday October 9, 2021.
Some users have recently noticed discoloration of their water. Unprecedented rainfall has added color from dissolved organics in the source water. Additional organics accumulated in the distribution system is the cause of the discoloration. The water is safe to drink. Public Works tests the water throughout the distribution system daily. Flushing the water mains will improve the situation. Brattleboro is currently constructing a new water treatment facility which will improve our ability to treat the water supply during unusual conditions in the future.
Please note that water main flushing will occur at night and during the day.
Night flushing will occur from 10:00 p.m. to 6:00 a.m.
Day flushing will occur from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.
