MWRA Pipe Repair May Cause Discolored Water
in Areas of East Boston and Chelsea

On Tuesday, April 19, MWRA will be activating water main which runs along Everett Street in Chelsea. This work may cause discolored water in East Boston and in Chelsea from Broadway to the Everett City Line. No disruption to water service is expected.

If discolored water does occur, it will result from a small amount of iron in local pipes. Please note that iron will stain light colored items in your laundry, especially when bleach is used. Residents may want to wait for the water to clear before using it.

If you have any questions, please call Jeff McLaughlin at (617) 305-5762, or MWRA's 24-hour water line at (617) 305-5950.
