Spring Flushing Program

The City of Woburn Hydrant Flushing Program will begin April 2019.

Flushing Zone:

Starting October 2, 2019 we will be flushing zone 8 

This area includes Kilby St., surrounding areas of Main St., Chestnut St. and Beach St.

Flushing of this area will take approximately 10-12 business days.  The hours of flushing are 8am to 3pm.  During this time you may experience temporary loss of water, low water pressure and discolored water.  If water is discolored, flush your cold water for 15-30 minutes until it runs clear.    Thank you for your patience and cooperation, if you have any questions, please contact the Water Department at 781-897-5945


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