East Greenwich and Warwick, RI
West Warwick, RI -- Kent County Water Authority during Monday, December 2, 2013 thru the daytime hours of Friday, December 6, 2013 between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. depending on weather and system demand conditions will conduct hydrant flushing in a portion of our East Greenwich and Warwick system. Description is as follows:
This flushing is being done to remove the bulk of the accumulated sediments and mineral deposits in our water mains prior to the onset of our winter demand period.
Our customers may experience some discolored water and lower than normal water pressure during this period.
If you experience discoloration, allow your cold water to run for a short time to clear this up. We will have our crews in the field to monitor this during the hydrant flushing. You may also experience a reduction in pressure during this time. This is just temporary due to the flushing.
We certainly apologize for any inconvenience this might cause but this flushing is important for our continued operation of our system and to provide consistent quality of water to our customers.
Certainly, if any customers have concerns during this flushing period, please call the Kent County Water Authority at 821-9300. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
