You will experience discolored water and low water pressure during the flushing process and we apologize for this inconvenience. 

In the event that you experience a prolonged period of discolored water, please, run numerous cold water taps for 5 to 10 minutes or until it clears up.

This is also the time to thoroughly flush your hot water tank as sediment may enter the tank during the flushing program. Please read on for the complete schedule.

Happiness Survey

You have the right to be satisfied with your life.  Most historians agree that this is what Thomas Jefferson meant when he wrote that we have the right to pursue happiness.  For almost 20 years the folks at the Happiness Initiative have been working to measure just how happy are you.  They do this by a polling of individuals (now measuring over 40,000) drawing on the survey model of the Kingdom of Buhtan (  This survey results in a Gross National Happiness Index.  

The Gross National Happiness Index survey will help assist the Sustainability Commission to assess just how Satisfied with Life are the citizens of Groton and hopefully lead to ideas, programs and policies that will contribute to increased community well-being  and individual satisfaction with Life.  It helps all of us to assess the sustainability of our communities’ happiness, and to inspire us to take action.
