Water District Fall Flushing Program

The Sanford Water District flushes its water mains twice a year to clear any build up of iron.  The flushing is carried out between the hours of 10:00PM and 5:00AM so as to minimize any inconvenience that may be caused by the off color water during the flushing of the water mains. The Spring flushing program starts in April and ends in May. The Fall flushing program starts in October and ends in November.

​Customers with questions about the flushing program should call the District Office at 324-2312.

The Fall program will begin on the evening of October 11th.
