Waterline flushing schedules

The Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works will begin its semi-annual program for flushing waterlines in these areas: Mystic Harbour, Landings, Assateague Point, and West Ocean City, Newark, Nantucket Point, and Edgewater Acres.

The purpose of this program is to remove any accumulated sediment from the lines and to ensure the hydrants are operational. Below are the proposed dates for the flushing of the waterlines, and please be advised that these dates are subject to change. 
 

  • April 15 – 26 – Mystic Harbour, Landings, Assateague Point, and West Ocean City 
     
  • April 22 – 26 – Newark, Nantucket Point, and Edgewater Acres
     

Please be aware that, even on dates the water lines in your section are not being flushed, it is still possible to experience discolored water. If area residents notice that their water becomes cloudy during these times, please allow the water to run for a few minutes until it becomes clear. 
 For more information, call the Water and Wastewater Division at (410) 641-5251.
