Watermains in Northfield will be flushed daily between 9 p.m. to 6 a.m. on Sunday, May 22 through Thursday, May 26.

Residents are advised to limit water use during the flushing period and check for discoloration before using water for laundry purposes.

If your laundry does get discolored, keep the laundered items wet and pick up a special soap for stain removal at Northfield Utilities Division, 1101 College St.
