The Town of Essex Water Department will be hydrant flushing starting the week of May 14, 2018. Flushing will begin at the Hamilton line and end at the Gloucester line. We anticipate that it will take 2 weeks to complete. In the event that you get discolored water, run a hose spigot or a cold water tap until clear.
Pursuant to Mass General Law Chap 40, Section 42B, Water service may be shut off or liened for non-payment.
