RWSD Hydrant Flushing 9/13 – 9/17

The Rollinsford Water and Sewer District will be flushing hydrants during overnight hours next week (9/13 through 9/17). Flushing is part of our routine maintenance program necessary to maintain the integrity of the water system and to ensure the hydrants are in proper working order. Please note that although the water is safe to drink after flushing, it can become discolored. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water is clear. If it is not clear the first time, wait a few minutes and repeat this process.

For more information, please check the RWSD website at https://rollinsfordwatersewer.org, contact the District office via phone at 603-742-8124 or via email at admin@rollinsfordwatersewer.org.
