2021 Hydrant Flushing Schedule

The 2021 Hydrant Flushing schedule can be found here.

The Cumberland Water Department will begin our Hydrant Flushing Program. This is a semi-annual procedure to remove the bulk of the accumulated sediments in the water mains.  While hydrant flushing is occurring in your area you may experience some discolored water, as well as lower than normal pressure. If you experience rusty water, run your cold water for a short time to clear lines.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

Message to the Town of Cumberland

Upon the advice of Governor Gina Raimondo and the Rhode Island Department of Health, I have determined that extraordinary measures must be taken to reduce the spread of the Covid-19.

At this time, Town Hall is open to the public with hours will be from 9 to 12 and 1 to 4.  Anyone entering the building will be asked to sign in and wear a mask/face-covering. A drop box located at the ADA ramp entrance on the side of Town Hall is available to accept payments and to process requests for information. We ask that all members of the public looking to do business in the Town Clerk’s Office or the Vault make appointments to ensure proper distancing.

If there is anything our office can do to be of service to you, please contact my Community Outreach Coordinator, Sarah King at 401-728-2400 x132.

We appreciate your patience during this challenging time. I firmly believe that we are better together. Our collective strengths as individuals and as a town will see us through this crisis.

Be well.

Thank you,

Mayor Jeff Mutter
