Work May Cause Temporary Water Discoloration
in Orient Heights Area of East Boston

During the week of August 30, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be activating a water meter and a section of water pipeline that feed the Orient Heights section of East Boston. This work may cause discolored water for this area for up to three days after activation.

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.
