MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Reading

On Wednesday evening, May 1, 2013, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be performing water valve work on Washington Street in Woburn that may cause discolored water in several communities, including Reading, for up to 3 days.  No loss of pressure is anticipated from this work.

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.
