MWRA Leak Repair Work Will Take Place in Median
at Commonwealth Avenue and Oakland Avenue, Newton

Location of work, Newton

MWRA will make necessary repairs to water main leak in Newton starting on Wednesday, November 9, 2016. The project is expected to last approximately two weeks.

The work will take place in the road median at the intersection of Commonwealth Avenue and Oakland Avenue (map, PDF). Area traffic may be impacted.

Discolored water is not anticipated, but it is possible. 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 contact Len Cawley at (617) 305-5757, or MWRA's 24-hour water line at (617) 305-5950.
