8/23/2017 - Hydrant Flow Tests 8/28-8/30

Hydrant Flow Test

The City of East Providence Water Utilities Division will be conducting hydrant flow tests during the following time periods:

Monday, 8/28/17, from 9 pm to 5 am

Tuesday, 8/29/17, from 9 pm to 5 am

Wednesday, 8/30/17, from 9 pm to 5 am

Customers of the East Providence water system may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure during these times.

Your water is safe to drink. Occasionally, water becomes discolored after hydrant flushing. If this happens, run your cold water tap for a few minutes until the water clears. If it doesn't clear the first time, wait a few minutes and run the water again. You should avoid washing clothes until the water clears.  We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause you.  Thank you for your cooperation.

For further information, if needed, please contact the Water Utilities Division office at 435-7741.
