Welcome to East Smithfield
Water District Online
The East Smithfield Water District was created by an Act of the Rhode Island General Assembly at the January Session, 1934. The District service area includes the Esmond and Georgiaville sections of the Town of Smithfield and the Greystone section of the Town of North Providence. The District distributes water services on a retail basis to residential, commercial, and industrial consumers within its service area.
The District is governed by a seven member Executive Board: the District Moderator, the District Treasurer, both of whom are appointed by the Board, and five members who are elected by the ratepayers of the District. Elected members serve a term of three years. Vacancies occurring during a term are filled for the unexpired term. The Chairperson of the Board is selected by a majority vote of the Board members.

WATER SYSTEM FLUSHING
The East Smithfield Water District will be flushing our water system during the months of April, May, and June, 2015. The flushing is done mainly on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays, between 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. This maintenance is necessary to ensure that the sediment that accumulates in the distribution system annually, is removed from your water supply.
We ask that you avoid using your water during this time. Should you see our technicians on your street, or fire hydrants flowing in your area, you will know we are working in your area. Should you use your water, you may experience discolored water. Although, discolored water is not a health hazard, it does not look or taste appealing.
The inconvenience to each customer is no more than a few hours. By 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon of the same day, your water should be running clear. If it is not totally clear, please run your faucets for a few minutes at a time until the water runs clear. Thank you for your cooperation during this time. If you have any questions, please call us at 401-231-0510.
