Aquarion Water Company will be flushing the water mains in Hingham this spring. Flushing will be done between 9:00pm and 5:00am Sunday through Thursday.

During this time, you might notice drops in pressure & some discoloration in your water. This discoloration results from the temporary disturbance of the water flow, which stirs up naturally occuring minerals that settle in water mains. Our objective is to remove these sediments from the water main so that they are not brought into your household plumbing.

You may want to store tap water in the refrigerator in advance, for drinking and other essential needs. And, if your water is discolored, delay washing clothes until it is clear.

Information regarding flushing is also available on our hotline : 1-800-203-7000.

For other questions, please contact our Customer Service Center at 1-800-732-9678.

We appreciate your understanding and patience.

Start Date:  Tuesday, January 16, 2018

Aquarion Water Company will be rehabilitating the Accord water storage tank located off of Route 228 in Hingham. The 750,000 gallon steel storage tank, built in 1967, must be repainted to protect against corrosion. We are committed to providing you with affordable, high quality, reliable water and this $800,000 project represents a substantial, yet critical investmet in our company's infrastructure. The project entails erecting a scaffolding and dust containment system and removing the tank's existing coating (by sand-blasting) before applying a specialized, high performance, long term paint to the tank's interior and exterior. Prior to sandblasting and painting, Aquarion will empty the tank and remove it from service.
