Street Sweeping

The DPW's Stormwater Division has started its street sweeping operation. Approximately 196 miles of roadways will be swept in town. Residents are encouraged to sweep the sand from their sidewalks into the gutters shortly before crews are scheduled to sweep your street.   A map with a schedule is available on the Public Works' web page, which will help residents anticipate when the street sweepers will be arriving in their neighborhood.

Please note that timelines and estimates can be impacted by weather and/or equipment related issues. Street sweepers operate in the worst possible conditions (i.e. constant dust) and, even with proper maintenance and constant attention, equipment down-time due to mechanical problems is inevitable.

Hydrant Flushing

The Weston DPW Water Division is in the process of flushing fire hydrants throughout town, which will continue through June. This program is conducted annually in order to remove sediment buildup in the mains. The flushing may result in temporary discoloration of the water, caused by small particles dislodged during the flushing. Discoloration might stain your laundry, especially white materials. To help avoid staining your laundry, we recommend you check the water for possible discoloration during periods of flushing. If the water is discolored, let the cold water run for a minute or two, or until the water clears. Hydrant flushing will be performed on weekdays between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. starting from the south side of Town, working towards the north. A map of the town's hydrants with a schedule for flushing is available on the DPW's web page.
