Madison Street Construction
Madison Street construction is scheduled to begin next Tuesday, October 15th at 7:00 a.m. beginning approximately 1,000 feet up from Route 140 end. Every effort will be done to keep a lane open at all times for local traffic, school busses and emergency vehicles.
There may be times the construction zone is not passable and the contractor will be working around the school bus schedules when this is necessary. Residents should plan accordingly to expect delays and detours.

Open Space Plan Survey
Wrentham is updating its Open Space and Recreation Plan (OSRP) and completing an OSRP that gains approval from the Massachusetts Division of Conservation Services (DCS) serves two primary purposes:
- to guide future Town decisions pertaining to open space and recreation and
- to make the Town eligible for grants that can be used to purchase open space and develop recreation facilities.
Public participation is a key component of preparing a plan so your input is very important. Survey responses will be accepted through October 15, 2019. Results of the survey, as well as draft goals and objectives, will be presented at a public forum on October 29 at Town Hall at 7:30 p.m. Paper copies can be picked up at the Town Clerk's Office, or the survey can be completed online by clicking on Open Space and Recreation Plan Survey.
The Wrentham Department of Public Works, Water Division, will be flushing water mains and hydrants throughout the town between the hours of 7:00 p.m. and 3:00 a.m. Sunday night through Thursday night starting September 15, 2019. This action will go for approximately five (5) weeks; this schedule may change however due to emergency calls and weather conditions. Click here for Flushing Schedule and Flushing Zone Map.
Flushing is performed during the overnight hours to minimize any disruption to water quality. The flushing process removes accumulated sediments such as iron and manganese from the pipes. Customers are advised that a drop in pressure and some discoloration of the water may occur while the flushing is in progress. This may also happen in neighbourhoods that are near the areas being flushed. If you notice the flushing crew working in your neighborhood, avoid doing laundry or using water if at all possible.
This discoloration does not poses a health risk; however residents are encouraged to run your cold water through the lowest fixture in your home until the discolored water becomes clear, this may take several minutes. While hydrant flushing might appear wasteful, it is essential in maintaining the cleanest and safest drinking water possible We appreciate your patience and cooperation; any questions should be directed to the Wrentham Public Works at (508) 384-5477 between the hours of 7:00 AM and 3:00 PM Monday through Friday.
