MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Areas of Chelsea

On Tuesday, August 6, 2013, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be performing water valve work in Chelsea on Second Street. This work may result in discolored water in the Second Street area. 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.
