Kent County Water and Wastewater Services will be conducting a two-day flushing operation from the Town of Rock Hall through Edesville:

In response to the recent concerns of iron-colored water, Kent County Water and Wastewater Services will be conducting a two-day flushing operation from the Town of Rock Hall through Edesville.

It will begin Wednesday, January 23, 2019, at the corner of Liberty and Sharp Street and will continue up Sharp Street until reaching Route 20 (by the Parts Plus). This process will continue on Thursday, January 24, 2019, from Route 20 (by Parts Plus) and up Route 20 until reaching the water tower in Edesville.

While flushing is in progress, you will may notice drops in water pressure and a rusty appearance to the water. If your 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 Water and Wastewater Services appreciates your cooperation and patience. If you should have any questions regarding this procedure, county residents should contact the Water and Wastewater Services at (410) 778-3287 and Rock Hall residents should call the Town of Rock Hall at (410) 639-7611 during the normal business hours of 8:30 am – 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.
