Hydrant Flushing Program in Stow to Commence
The City of Stow Water Department will begin its 2nd round of hydrant flushing for the year on Monday, July 31, 2023 (weather dependent). This round of flushing will take approximately 7-8 weeks to complete. Signs will be posted in work areas, prior to the start, and as the program moves into adjacent sections. The hydrant flushing will begin around the Marsh Rd. pump station at Marsh & North River Rd. and fan out from there. All residential and commercial areas will be flushed during the daytime hours of 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
The Department advises that customers refrain from doing laundry, as well as running water for cooking or medical needs, while crews are in your immediate area. All customers are reminded to observe changes in water clarity during this program. If water is discolored, let a cold water tap run for several minutes until clear. If water does not clear within a few minutes, customers are advised to wait 1-2 hours and repeat the process. Pressure fluctuations may also be experienced during this time. It will return to normal as lines stabilize. Further information can be obtained by calling the Water Department at 330-689-2911.
