MWRA’s Valve Exercising Program – October, 2014

As part of its regular maintenance program, the MWRA will be exercising large water valves within several communities during the month of October. This work may result in discolored water in the areas below.

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.
