Town of Narragansett Water Division


Town of Narragansett Water Division – North End System (PWS# RI1858429, as supplied by Veolia Rhode Island only) has levels of Disinfection Byproducts (DBPs) above Drinking Water Standards. Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not an emergency, as our customers you have a right to know what happened and what we are doing to correct this situation.  The Town of Narragansett operates two water systems, North End and Point Judith.  The Town purchases water for the North End System from both the Town of North Kingstown and Veolia Rhode Island, whereby one portion of the system is supplied by water from North Kingstown, and one portion is supplied by water from Veolia.  This notice only applies to Town of Narragansett water customers within the North End System (PWS# RI1858429) that are supplied with water purchased from Veolia Rhode Island.

Hydrant Flushing

The Town of Narragansett Water Division will be flushing fire hydrants located on the North End Water System service area supplied by VEOLIA beginning approximately November 27, 2023 through December 1, 2023 between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 3:30 p.m.  Our customers may experience discolored water and lower than normal water pressure.  If you experience dirty water while the flushing process is taking place turn off your water immediately, wait a short time to allow us to finish flushing your neighborhood, then run your cold-water faucet until the water clears.   We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. 

This is a semi-annual procedure to remove organic material and sediment that accumulates in the water main and to check the operation of fire hydrants.   Any questions may be referred to the Narragansett Water Division at 782-0639.
