The Freetown Water & Sewer Commission is currently flushing the water lines in Assonet, as directed by MassDEP.
This program is designed to continue to provide clean, potable water to our customers without the use of charcoal filters. The water received from the City of Fall River is safe and within all state regulatted guidelines, which we then pass along to our Assonet customers.
We are flushing at 5 hydrants in Assonet, and they will be running continuously, so do not be alarmed.
Flushing will continue until late fall. If you have any questions, please contact the Freetown Water & Sewer Commission at 508-644-4000.
