NEW and Current

The City of Sandwich Public Works Department will begin flushing fire hydrants throughout the City on Monday, October 23rd through Saturday, October 28th (if required).  Flushing times will be from the hours of 8 am to 4 pm. Please note rescheduled dates.
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 the discoloration clears and run your cold water for approximately 5 minutes to clear your service line.
If you do have laundry damaged by discolored water, avoid drying the clothes.  Rust remover can also be picked up at Sandwich City Hall at 144 E. Railroad Street between the hours of 8:00 am to 5:00 pm.

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.
