[ARCHIVED] Notice from the Shrewsbury Water Department

Water pump with text Shrewsbury Water Department and Established 1905 around pump

Water Customers toward the Center of Town may temporarily experience discolored water in result of a hydrant flow test on West Main St. and repair work being conducted on Boston Turnpike. Notification was given by a Code Red message to the lower section of Main St. and associated adjacent and side streets, however some areas beyond the anticipated section are experiencing discolored water. If you receive discolored water, please run your water lines on cold to clear out any sediment. We recommend that you do this from the closest cold water tap to where your water service enters your home. The discoloration needs to work through the system to clear which may take some time, as more people use the water. Opening up additional hydrants may add to the problem, as it stirs up additional turbidity. We thank you for your patience and understanding.
