MWRA Work May Cause Discolored Water in Melrose, Stoneham
The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority will begin work to replace a water meter on Nov. 26.
The Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) will begin work to replace a water meter on Monday, Nov. 26, according to a press statement.
"This work may cause discolored water in parts of Melrose and Stoneham in the areas around West Wyoming and the Fellsway (east of Ravine Terrace) for up to three days," reads the statement. "There will be no impacts to water pressure."
If discolored water does occur, it will result from a small amount of iron in the pipes, reads the statement.
While safe for drinking, cooking and other uses, "iron will stain light colored items in your laundry, especially when bleach is used," according to the statement. Residents should check water clarity before washing any white or lighter colored laundry during this period of work, reads the statement.
