The Peabody Fire Department will flush fire hydrants in Ward 4 Precinct 3 and Ward 3 Precinct 2 throughout the month of June. The department’s annual flushing program removes sediment collecting in the pipes. That process means residents could see some temporary discoloration or silt in their tap water. The solution is to run your tap until the water is clear. The department prefers to stick to an annual flushing because it makes the process “quick and easy,” said Peabody Fire Department Deputy Chief Richard Nelson. “The longer you wait, the more sediment collects,” he said.
