MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Parts of Everett

work location

The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority is currently excavating to retrofit a blow-off valve on the Section 57 pipeline along Appleton Street at Elm Way in Everett, see map, (PDF). On Monday, October 1, MWRA has tentatively scheduled to isolate this portion of Section 57 to support the work, and reactivate later in the week.

Addresses near Everett Meter 118 at Appleton Street and Main Street may experience some discolored water following the isolation, but will continue to be supplied by other active meters.

Discoloration can be flushed by removing aerators and running cold water through any affected taps. 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 or concerns, please contact MWRA Community Coordinator, Jeffrey McLaughlin at (617) 305-5762 or
