Scheduled Hydrant Flow Testing


Providence Water crews will be in the following neighborhoods tonight, Wednesday March 29,from 10:00 PM-6:00 AM performing hydrant flow tests and routine maintenance to ensure fire safety for you and your family.

- Dyer St. at Pine St., Providence
- Harmon Ave. at Pleasant Hill Rd., Cranston

This maintenance work often causes temporary discoloration of water from your faucet and occasionally, temporary instances of low water pressure.

The water is safe for you to use and discoloration of water normally goes away between 24 and 48 hours. Flushing the cold water faucet in your property for several minutes will often eliminate the discoloration issue
