Boston Water and Sewer Commission will begin Water Main Flushing in the areas of Roxbury and the South End July 23, 2017 through September 5, 2017

The boundaries for the areas being flushed are: Kneeland Street at Harvard Street to the north, Dudley Street at Shawmut Avenue to the south, Kneeland Street at Hudson Street to the east and St. Alphonsus Street at Smith Street to the west.

The purpose of the Water Main Flushing Program is to improve drinking water quality for residents and businesses.

The flushing process may cause discolored water and a reduction in pressure. The discoloration of the water will be temporary and is not harmful. If the condition persists, please contact BWSC's 24 Hour Service at (617) 989-7000.

If you have any questions, contact BWSC's Night Operations Manager at (617) 989-7000 or visit our website at
