Hydrant Flushing

The Champlain Water District Retail Department will be conducting its annual Hydrant Flushing program beginning Wednesday, August 14 and continuing through Thursday, August 22, 2019. We will be flushing in the Malletts Bay Water Company and Colchester Town water distribution systems within the Town of Colchester. Flushing includes those streets in the MBWC including Malletts Bay Ave., Morehouse Dr., Young St., Colonial Dr., Abigail Dr., Valleyfield Dr., Carriage Way and associated streets.

Flushing in the CT system includes Upper and Lower Mountain View Drives, Hercules Dr., Water Tower Circle, South Park Dr., and associated streets.

Flushing will begin at 8:00 a.m. and run until 3:00 p.m. Some residences and businesses could experience low water pressure and/or orange or brown water at times during the flushing program.

To clear the discolored water, let your cold water run for approximately 5-10 minutes from an outside hose bib. Repeat this process if necessary.

If you experience low pressure during the evening hours, or have any questions regarding this notice, please call the CHAMPLAIN WATER DISTRICT at 864-7454.
