"Annual Water Pipe Flushing" Really? Yuck!
Annual water pipe flusing starts
The town’s Water Division is conducting its annual water pipe flushing program. The flushing is done each spring to remove sediment that has settled in the system during the past year. This year’s program began last Monday, and is expected to take about four weeks to complete. The flushing started in the northern part of town at the Middleton line and will gradually move in a southeasterly direction, ending in Danversport. A weekly schedule is being posted on the Department of Public Works page on the town’s website, www.danvers.govoffice.com. Officials said that residents might notice some discoloration of their water while pipes in their neighborhood are being flushed. Running cold water for a few minutes will clear up the discoloration. Any problems should be reported to the Water Division at 978-762-0230.
Do you really think flushing the pipes once a year is going to protect your health, and the water that ends up in your house? What happens to all the sediment in the pipes the other 364 days of the year?
No matter where you live, you should be in control of the quality of your water. Your body is almost 70% water and it should be the best quality possible. If not one of our water systems (which, of course I think is the best), you should invest in any water filtration system available. But, do your research on the quality of the filters and their ability to remove chemicals, sediment etc. Some areas of the country have special issues with water that needs to be addressed, such as high chlorine, fluoride and even radiation. The best quality water system doesn't have to break your wallet too!
