MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Areas of Brookline
Map of work area

On Thursday, November 12, 2015, MWRA, in conjunction with the Brookline Water Division, will be activating a pipeline connection to Brookline’s Low Service System on Fisher Avenue.

This process may result in reduced pressure in higher elevations and discolored water in the area northeast of the Brookline Reservoir (area in green on map) for a period of up to 3 days.
If discolored water does occur, it will result from a small amount of iron in local 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 near this location should check water clarity before washing any white or lighter colored laundry during this period of work.

For more information, please contact Jeff McLaughlin at (617) 305-5672.
