Hydrant Flushing


The Westfield Water Department will be conducting hydrant flushing and inspections on the Southwest side of the city between May 31 and June 30, 2022, from 8:00 AM and 4:00 PM. 

During the flushing process sediment in water mains may be disturbed causing a temporary discoloration of water. The water is safe for drinking or bathing during this period but residents nearby the flushing area who notice discoloration are advised to run the cold water (preferably in a bath tub, or outside faucet) for 5 to 10 minutes or until the water clears. 

Before doing any laundry, please make sure the tap water is running clear. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but flushing is an important maintenance process for our hydrant and water main system.

Any questions or concerns should be directed to the Westfield Water Department – (413) 572-6243.
