Summer Day Camp Coming Soon
Good news for kids ages 5 to 12…and their parents: the Parks and Recreation Department is offering its first Summer Day Camp beginning May 31. During each weekly session at the Plainfield Recreation and Aquatic Center campers will create crafts, play sports and games, and swim in the indoor and/or outdoor Splash Island pools. Camp guards are trained in the American Red Cross Safe-Sitter program and in First Aid and CPR.
Camp sessions will run from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each weekday for age groups 5 to 8 and 9 to 12. For parents needing a little extra drop-off and pick-up time before and/or after the daily sessions, weekly Supervised Play sessions are available from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. and from 5 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Hydrant Flushing Continues
The Department of Public Works began flushing Town hydrants in early April, but with approximately 1,700 to do, the process will continue into June. According to Utility manager Kurt Wirth, “Hydrant flushing is a normal maintenance procedure that helps improve water quality by clearing iron buildup from water distribution lines.”
To minimize resident and commuter inconvenience, crews work between 9 p.m. and 5:00 a.m. Workers typically spend about 10 minutes at each hydrant. “Residents in the area who use water during the process may notice some temporary water discoloration,” Wirth said. He noted that the water should be clear within about 30 minutes.
