Since 2015, the Ipswich Water Department has been investigating the impacts of its annual flushing program in the outer Linebrook Road area (west of Route 1). Ongoing resident issues related to flushing activities, such as low water pressure and air entrapment in water pipes, led the Water Department to commission a study evaluating the water system in this area. The study included targeted flushing activities to gain information on system hydraulics (e.g. system pressures and observed flows) and a hydraulic model to determine what system modifications, if any, may improve the hydraulics in the area.
