MANSFIELD — The water department will be flushing fire hydrants all over town for the next five weeks beginning Thursday.

The annual work is conducted to clean iron and other mineral deposits that form in water mains and to ensure adequate water flow and quality.

Workers will be flushing hydrants from midnight to 6 a.m., weather permitting, according to the public works department.

If customers experience water discoloration, they should run it until it clears.

For additional information go to or call the water department at 508-261-7376.
