Danbury is continuing a fire hydrant flushing project. The work started in late March and was estimated to take 9 weeks to complete. The annual hydrant flushing is done to provide better water quality and fire protection. The work being done this week is in the Newtown Road and Commerce Drive area, as well as some part of Main Street. Residents may experience fluctuations in pressure or water discoloration during this time. If the water is discolored, City officials recommend running the cold tap until it turns clear, and to hold off on washing clothes and using hot water until the cold water clears.
