water logo

The Water and Sewer Division has received several reports of discolored water today. Crews are working to identify the cause, which they believe was from the unauthorized use of a hydrant. The areas where discolored water have occurred include North Quinsigamond Avenue, Old Mill Road, and Tanglewood Drive.

If you experience discolored water, please discontinue using water for a period of time (up to an hour) and then try the water again. While discolored water is present, please refrain from using hot water and flush your cold water using a downstairs bathtub or outside faucet.

We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience and understanding. Please contact the Department of Public Works at 508-841-8502 or with questions.
