NEW and Current

From the Sandwich Water Department:
The City of Sandwich Public Works Department will begin flushing fire hydrants throughout the City on Monday May 1st through the 5th.  Flushing times will be from the hours of 8am to 4pm.
Please be advised that flushing may cause some discoloration of water. This does not represent a health hazard. However, customers are cautioned to determine if the water is clear before washing clothes (or any other processing) as staining may occur. If you experience discolored water, avoid using hot water until discoloration clears and run your cold water for approximately 5 minutes to clear your service line.
If you do have any laundry damaged by discolored water, avoid drying the clothes. Rust remover can also be picked up at the City Hall at 144 East Railroad Street between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.
Lead Notice: the purpose of this notice is for informational purposes only, while it is not known for certain if your residence has a lead service line coming into your house, the following link will help you determine if you have lead service coming into your home or inside plumbing futures that may contain lead.  
The Sandwich Water Department regrets any temporary inconvenience you may experience; however, the flushing program is necessary to maintain a good water supply for both firefighting and domestic consumption.
We thank you in advance for your cooperation!
Sandwich Water Department.
