Updated as of 6:00 a.m. 5/23/2019 – HYDRANT FLUSHING IS COMPLETE.

The Milford Water Company will be continuing its annual hydrant flushing program in the Town of Milford starting on Sunday, April 7, 2019. Flushing is scheduled at NIGHT between the hours of 8:00 p.m. and 6:00 a.m. and will continue throughout the month of April/May/June until the entire system has been completed. Hydrant flushing is conducted to remove any accumulated sediment from the water pipes that may impair water quality. The program also provides the opportunity to inspect hydrants to ensure they will operate properly in the event of a fire. During the flushing program you may notice a temporary loss in water pressure and water discoloration. Please run the water first before using for laundry. If you have any questions regarding areas being flushed or problems caused by the flushing program, please contact our office at (508) 473-5110 between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m..




Effective October 1st 2018

Milford Water Company is currently on a STAGE I Water CONSERVATION Level.

What does this mean to you as a customer?

ALL OUTSIDE WATER USAGE INCLUDING IRRIGATION WATER IS ON A VOLUNTARY ODD – EVEN ALLOCATION PROGRAM BETWEEN THE HOURS OF 7PM AND 7AM. This means that all outside water use is based on your house number, odd numbers may use water on odd calendar days and even numbers may use water on even number days after 7pm and before 7am.


The Milford Water Company at this time would like to thank all of its customers for their cooperation in this matter and hope that by CONSERVING now we will not need to increase our water restriction going forward.
