Newport Main Water Line Flushing Begins Sunday: See Schedule
NEWPORT, RI – Flushing of water lines is scheduled to begin in Newport this week. The project, which is part of the ongoing maintenance of the system, is expected to last three weeks.
Flushing will include all of Newport, as well as parts of Middletown and Portsmouth. While flushing, residents can expect low water pressure and discolored water. Anyone with discolored water should run cold taps throughout the house for five to 10 minutes, or until the water runs clear.
The Newport Water Division will post signs in each area before flushing begins. It will take place from 8 p.m. at 4 a.m.
