Watermains are routinely flushed to remove minerals and to check the operational integrity of the fire hydrants.
During this time, we recommend you limit water use and check for water discoloration before doing laundry.
If your laundry gets discolored, keep the items wet and pick up a special soap for stain removal at Northfield Utilities Division at 1101 College Street.
Watermains will be flushed daily between 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday, September 17 through Thursday, September 21.
