The Worcester County Water and Wastewater Division of Public Works will begin its semi-annual program for flushing waterlines in Ocean Pines, River Run, Pennington Commons and other areas of the county during October. The purpose of this program is to remove any accumulated sediment from the lines and to ensure the hydrants are operational. Below are the proposed dates for the flushing of the waterlines. These dates are subject to change.
Week of October 5 – Sections 2, 3, 7, River Run, and Showell Elementary
Week of October 12 – Sections 1, 4, 5, 6, 8, and Harbor Village
Week of October 19 – Sections 12, 14a, 14b, 14c, 14d, and Mumfords Landing

Please be aware that even on dates the waterlines in your section are not being flushed it is still possible to experience discolored water. If area residents notice that their water becomes cloudy during these times, allow the water to run for a few minutes until it becomes clear.
