2021 Spring System Flushing for Brewster

System flushing for the area of town roughly west of Underpass and Foster Roads will begin Monday, April 29th. This is annual maintenance and there is no need to be concerned. The first area to be flushed will be northwest of the water tanks located at Yankee Drive. Route 137 to Route 6a and then to the Dennis town line including water front roads. The second area will be southwest of the tanks on Route 137 and Route 124 to the Harwich town line. A rough estimate for completion is 8 to 10 weeks.

The Department will flush during the hours of 8:30 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Friday throughout the spring period. Signboards will be posted on the major roads in the area notifying the residents of flushing. The Department suggests residents of the posted area limit day time water use, if possible, and check the hot and cold water for clarity before doing laundry or for other domestic purposes. Water clarity should return quickly after flushing has ended each day. Some areas may be affected more that others and customers in areas immediately surrounding the posted areas may also be affected. Department customers east of Underpass Rd. should not be significantly affected by discolored water during the flushing.

We apologize for any inconvenience experienced and appreciate the continued cooperation of Brewsters' water customers in this effort to maintain the highest quality potable water possible. This is part of our routine maintenance and it is not necessary to contact the Brewster Water Department.
