April-May 2018
Please be advised: The Lynn Water & Sewer Commission will be conducting hydrant flushing
between the hours of 6 PM until 10 PM during April and May, starting Monday April 9, 2018.

Rusty and dirty water may be experienced for a short time during and after flushing.  If the water appears dirty, leaving the tap open for several minutes following flushing should clear the pipes. Prior to doing laundry, residents are advised to check the hydrant flushing schedule.
