Annual Flushing Program

The City of Woburn Water Department will begin it’s annual hydrant flushing program the week of Monday, July 6, 2020.   As we progress through each area of the City, we will send out a RAVE Smart911 alert prior to and specific to each neighborhood we will be flushing in.

If you would like to sign up to receive our RAVE Smart911 alerts, please go to the Mobile Alerts tab at the top of this page or visit:  https://www.woburnma.gov/subscribe/ 

Please note that during flushing, residents may experience temporary loss of water, low water pressure and/or discolored water.  If this occurs let the cold water run until it clears.

We apologize for any inconvenience you may experience, and we appreciate your continued support.


Flushing is done to clean out the distribution pipelines by removing deposits, sediments and other materials that may be present in the pipes.
