The Harwich Water Department will begin flushing water mains throughout the community April 1st through June 28th, as weather permits. Flushing will take place Monday through Thursday between the hours of 7:00 PM and 12:00 AM in the areas of East Harwich and South Harwich.

The Department will do everything possible to minimize the disturbance during flushing periods. Please watch for signs that will be posted notifying residents of flushing areas. It is recommended that residents set aside clean water for drinking and cooking purposes should you experience discoloration. Be advised, temporary discoloration of the water and a chlorine taste is to be expected during the flushing period. Please check water for clarity prior to doing laundry.
We apologize for any inconvenience, and we appreciate the cooperation of the Harwich water customers in our effort to maintain the highest quality of potable water possible.

We encourage you to read our Flushing FAQs, which will answer most of your questions and concerns.  As always, please contact our office at 508-432-0304 if additional information is needed.  

Thank you for your cooperation!
