To our customers,


As part of the annual hydrant flushing program, the Woonsocket Water Division will be flushing the hydrants in the following area tonight: Constitution Hill and Fairmount, East, West, Center, South, Sayles St, Olo St, Mason St, Bourdon Blvd, and 1st through 10th Avenue. Side streets in these areas will be flushed as well.

The flushing will start at 9pm Tuesday, October 22nd and will continue until 5:00am Wednesday, October 23rd.  


Customers may experience discolored water, as well as lower than normal pressure. If you experience rusty water, run your COLD water for a short time to clear the lines.  Store clean water in containers for use until water runs clear.  If possible, please limit water usage during these hours, especially if you notice work crews in your area.


Thank You for Your Cooperation

Republicans may not have the votes to block witnesses in the impeachment trial against President Trump - at least not yet. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell reportedly told GOP senators in a closed-door meeting that several members still aren't committing to blocking witnesses. And that would appear to be fine with most registered voters. A new Quinnipiac [[ KWIN- uh-pea-ack ]] University poll out Tuesday shows 75 percent believe witnesses should be involved.        The Los Angeles County coroner says it has identified the body of NBA legend Kobe Bryant. Remains of four of the nine people who died Sunday in a helicopter crash in Southern California have been positively identified through fingerprints. Also killed in the crash was Bryant's 13-year-old daughter.        A white supremacist convicted of killing nine members of a black church in South Carolina is appealing his case. Dylann Roof appealed his death sentence and convictions Tuesday, arguing that he was mentally ill when he represented himself. Roof opened fire on a Bible study group at Emanuel AME Church in Charleston in 2015.        The economic fallout of the coronavirus is starting to hit the American shores. Companies including Apple, Facebook, Disney, General Motors, and Starbucks are taking steps to protect their employees and customers against the potentially deadly virus that originated in China by restricting some travel.        Toddlers who spend more than three hours a day watching screens like TVs or tablets are more likely to be sedentary by the time they reach school age. That's according to researchers in Singapore who found that most children are wrapped up in screens for an average of two-and-a-half hours a day. Those who watched more got less exercise and were less active by the time they were five.
