MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Parts of Watertown

On Wednesday, December 18, 2013, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be re-activating a water main in Watertown. As a result of this work, there is a chance that discolored water will occur in the areas near the intersection of Mount Auburn Street and Irving Street, and near Brooks Street and Nonantum Road. 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.
