MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Some Areas of Arlington

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be re-activating the Brattle Court Pump Station in Arlington on Thursday, May 27, 2010.  This work may cause discolored water in the areas around Forest Street and park Circle for a day or two.

If discolored water does occur, it will result from a small amount of iron in the pipes.  While safe for drinking, cooking and other uses, please note that iron will stain light colored items in your laundry, especially when bleach is used.  Residents should check water clarity before washing any white or lighter colored laundry during this period of work. Please call MWRA at 617-305-5950 if you have any questions.
