WESTFIELD - The Village of Westfield Water Department is letting all customers of the Westfield Municipal Water System know there will be an upcoming flushing of the water main.
Water main flushing will begin in the Village of Westfield on Monday, Oct. 8 at 7 a.m., and will flush until 3:30 p.m. daily until Friday, Nov. 2, or until the flushing is finished.
Flushing of Westfield's water mains will begin on the west side of the village and progress to the east side, going from the high point in the south and moving in a northerly direction. The process will end with the West Route 5 water district.
Flushing will cause roily water. Residents should stock a supply of water for drinking and cooking before flushing begins. Care should be taken not to draw the roily water into hot water tanks, heating systems and especially clothes washers.
