MWRA work may cause discolored water in Melrose and Stoneham

On Monday, November 26, 2012, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will begin work to replace a water meter. This work may cause discolored water in parts of Melrose and Stoneham in the areas around West Wyoming and the Fellsway (east of Ravine Terrace) for up to three days. There will be no impacts to water pressure.

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 concerns.
