Hampstead to flush fire hydrants

April 11, 1995

Starting at 9 a.m. tomorrow Hampstead residents may notice discoloration in their water when the town's water department personnel begin to flush fire hydrants.

Officials recommend that residents reserve enough water for their early morning routines before retiring tomorrow night. They also should run faucets Thursday morning until clear water is received.

Residents should refrain from doing laundry Thursday.

Although the water will be discolored, town officials said it is fully treated and potable.
