  • Spring Hydrant Flushing: Fire hydrants in the Town of Castine will be flushed starting on May 3 through May 9.  During this period, expect intermittent pressure fluctuations and occasional yellow water.  The yellow color in the water is due to the presence of iron.  We are also flushing the distribution system to test flow rates and pressures at specific hydrants.  When experiencing yellow water, do not use Clorox/bleach type products with your laundry.  Flush appliances and drain water heaters following the flushing period.  Call the Water Department at 326-8540 if you have any questions.
