Beginning at 9:00 a.m. on May 3, and continuing through May 28, the Kent County Division of Water and Wastewater will flush the water system according to the schedule listed below. Normal service should be restored by 3:00 p.m. each day. The flushing reduced the trace amounts of material commonly found in any water system.


While flushing is in progress, you may notice drops in water pressure and a rusty appearance to the water. If you water does appear rusty, flush it until it becomes clear. Also, avoid doing laundry and minimize the use of hot water. While this program may cause some inconvenience, it will help to maintain the high quality of your service.


In advance, the Kent County Division of Water and Wastewater appreciates your cooperation and patience. If you should have any questions regarding this procedure, please contact the Department of Water and Wastewater at 410-778-3287 during the normal business hours of 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
