Must be spring: it's flushing time again

The Merrimack Village District’s seasonal program of flushing main water lines and hydrants begins Monday.

Flushing is done to maintain water quality by dislodging naturally occurring sediment within pipes. It can cause minor street flooding, temporary water discoloration and short periods of low water pressure.

The following streets may be affected next week between 8:30 a.m. and 3 p.m.: Baboosic; Currier; Indian Rock; Lake; Mayflower; Powderhouse; Turkey Hill; and Wire roads; Catskill; Eagle; Falcon; Hemlock; Ichabod; Ivy; Sandhill; Souhegan; and Sundale drives; Berkley; Birch; Clay; Fir; Front; and Short streets; Collins; Edgewood; Minuteman; and Pilgrim avenues; Buck Meadow and Crane lanes; Mallard Point; and Daniel Webster Highway.

Questions can be directed to the district office at 424-9241, ext. 100.
