MWRA Pipe Maintenance May Cause Discolored Water
in the Kenmore Square Area

On Tuesday March 21, 2017 the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will be conducting maintenance on a water main located on Beacon Street in Boston.

This work is estimated to take 3 days to complete and may result in discolored water in parts of the Kenmore Square area.

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 should check water clarity before washing any white or lighter colored laundry during this period of work.

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